This walk from Wigginton Heath visits Swalcliffe, then goes to the edge of Shutford before turning to visit Tadmarton in a very lovely area of Oxfordshire. All the villages are most attractive, mainly of local stone, with their own individual and interesting features. The scenes are exceedingly beautiful with undulating land contours punctuated with the drama of several hills of note.

Jester's Hill is named after a local family and Madmarston Hill was an Iron Age hill camp. It was excavated in 1957 - 58, as was the large Roman settlement lying close to what is now known as Swalcliffe Lea.

The whole route is one of absolute joy and offers fine views over splendid countryside and neighbouring villages; a real gem of a walk.
