This is a walk from Steventon, on one side of the A34, to Milton on the other and back along a parallel route. We pass interesting places such as Milton Manor and Church and many historic Grade II-listed buildings. For the most part these buildings line the 700-year-old Causeway in Steventon, built by the monks of the Abbey of Bec, in France. It is a flat walk of about five miles but has one extension that can be skipped and many easy short cuts that would also reduce the distance.

The causeway is cobbled and makes walking sometimes difficult, but there is an adjacent pathway that can be used. The ground is likely to be wet and muddy in parts where it follows the path of the Ginge Brook, because water can seep onto the paths. There are two stiles and a footbridge over the A34 (this could be bypassed with a short detour if necessary).

A walk packed full of historical interest and well worth doing for that alone. It’s not especially tranquil and there’s barely a view to be had until you descend Steventon Hill at WM11 but the Causeway, the churches, the railway history and the many listed buildings make it memorable.
