This was once known as the sculpture trail but after funding was withdrawn they were all removed in 2008, it’s still a good walk though.
There is a circular walk starting from the north end of the car park, there used to be picnic benches here but they have also been removed. Just follow the mud track through the wood, lots of little short cuts and detours to take along the way.
On the west side of the road is the Aston Rowant National Nature Reserve. We haven’t yet done any of these walks but there is an information board at the car park with details of the various walks.
