Permissive path

Worton Farm have adopted the path along the bridleway south of the railway so walkers can now make a circular walk.  ‘Permissive path’ signage has been put there.  Unfortunately there has been some vandalism along the fencing which has been reported to the police, so please use this path responsibly. 

See map for location of path.

Yarnton Walkers - Update 

It has been some time since we last updated the villagers regarding our application to Oxfordshire County Council regarding the closure of the footpaths at the back of the Manor. 

The whole footpath issue in this country is complex and recently we have been made aware that the Government are planning more changes. The result of these proposals will be to try and make it a lot easier to bring the issue to the County Council and more importantly to speed up the process from taking years to taking months for the County Council to make a decision on the issue. In view of this we are currently seeking legal advice to ensure that our application has all its ducks in a row.

As we are sure a lot of you have noticed, it was disappointing to see that the farmer who leases the fields at the back of the Red Lion and the Manor, not only decided to plough up our former footpaths around the edges, but also to plough up the Public Footpaths crossing the fields. We did query this with Oxfordshire County Council and were advised that the ploughing of public rights of way is allowed where it is not convenient to leave the footpaths unploughed. However this is provided that the said footpaths are made good after the ploughing. We are examining whether this has been done.

Please keep a look out for notification of our next public meeting which we expect to call in January.

In the meantime a very Happy New Year to our 150 supporters in the village. 

Let us keep working together to prevent the decline of available footpaths in Yarnton. Thank you for all your support!
