Sutton Courtenay and the Thames Path

Starting from Appleford station, between Didcot and Abingdon, and designed to take advantage of the regular train service to and from London, Reading and Oxford, this walk takes in the attractive villages of Long Wittenham, Clifton Hampden and Sutton Courtenay, and a stretch of the Thames Path between them. These are attractive villages to walk through, and the walk offers the opportunity, depending on your interests, to visit up to four interesting churches, gongoozle at two Thames locks, and take advantage of at least one of seven pubs en route. If you walk in the direction recommended, Sutton Courtenay is about three quarters of the way around, where in All Saints churchyard you will find the graves of Herbert Asquith and George Orwell.

On certain Wednesdays and at weekends, you may also combine the walk with a visit to the excellent Pendon Model Railway Museum at Long Wittenham (WP5).
