We met at the village hall car park in between Upper and Lower Brailes at 9 am to start the walk, half of which is in Warwickshire the other half in Oxfordshire. The walk over undulation countryside, afforded spectacular views over the surrounding countryside, and great views of the red kites as they sored overhead. The route was mainly on well maintained footpaths, a bit muddy in places, took us south from Brailes to the small village of Great Rollright, where there was a market in progress in the village hall and for a donation we got ourselves a nice cup of tea. From Great Rollright we turned west through some woodlands before turning north, through some lovely villages and picturesque countryside back to Brailes and the cars. It was the first time that any of us had been to this area and we all agreed that it was good walking country and had enjoyed the walk.
The distance was 14.58 miles with 435m of elevation and took us 5.5 hours. We were lucky with the weather blue skies and sunny for most of the day.
