Walking in Oxfordshire

Are you fed-up with doing the same old walks?

Walking in Oxfordshire is the website for you!

With hundreds of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, contact details for all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.

John said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Oxfordshire (part of the Walking in England suite of websites (  – one for each county in England) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.

With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.

So home or away, check out the websites and get walking!

St Mary Magdalene Church, Crowmarsh Gifford

The church of St Mary Magdalene has existed since at least 1140 when it was used as a fortified post by King Stephen in his wars with Matilda who held Wallingford Castle. During the Civil War it was used by Cromwell’s men to shelter from the Royalists (there are cannon ball holes in the vestry door to prove it!).

Today we’ve put the guns away and, for several years now, have been linked to Wallingford as part of the Wallingford Team Ministry.

Worship takes place every Sunday at 11 o’clock and you’d be assured of a warm welcome at any of our services. Outside major festivals, the pattern is as follows:

1st Sunday in the month: All Age Worship (a simpler and shorter service with families in mind)

2nd Sunday in the month: Parish Communion (a fairly traditional service with choir & eucharist)

3rd Sunday in the month: Parish Communion

4th Sunday in the month: All Age Communion (a modern eucharist for everyone)

In addition we hold two or three services at the church of Newnham Murren in the summer.
