This circular walk explores the area to the south of this pretty Oxfordshire town. There’s nice waterside paths along the River Thames and a visit to the villages of Culham and Sutton Courtenay.
The walk begins next to Abingdon Abbey in the town centre. After exploring Culham the walk crosses the river at Culham Cut and proceeds to the nearby village of Sutton Courtenay. After leaving Sutton Courtenay the route heads west towards Drayton before turning north to Oday Hill. You then head through Caldecott to return to Abingdon. Here you can enjoy a stroll through the Market Place and visit the splendid Old County Hall which dates from 1862. The 15th-century St Helen’s Church and Long Alley Almshouses are also well worth visiting.
