Yarnton Walkers Group

I am pleased to advise everyone concerned in the village that the Application, together with supporting evidence from 140 villagers, has now been delivered to Oxfordshire County Council, Countryside Services in Eynsham. This is only the start of the process to have several of the old local footpaths behind the Red Lion and at the back of the Manor designated as Public Rights of Way. Many villagers already believed that this was the case.

We had hoped that the land owners would have been able to compromise and allow us to continue to walk the paths that have been used by many local generations. Unfortunately a compromise has not been possible, and it is with some sadness that we have to revert to the formal process and submit an Application Form for a Modification of the Definitive Map and Statement.

This formal process can take several years to resolve. We will keep everyone advised of the progress.

Thank you to all those villagers who have supported our case.

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.
