Route Description for Leafield and Field Assart Walk

While the Leafield and Field Assart Walk is a fairly simple and straightforward adventure, there are some portions of the route that will require you to walk alongside country roads. If you are attempting this walk with young children or dogs, be sure to remain aware of your surroundings and keep clear of any traffic. Additionally, the pastures in the area will most likely contain grazing cattle or horses, so keep your canine friends on a lead to avoid any potentially dangerous interactions. Other than that, the Leafield and Field Assart Walk makes for a pleasant afternoon of roaming the picturesque Oxfordshire countryside.
