Walk from Chadlington (Oxon) exploring the surrounding countryside and woodland. The route passes through the hamlet of Dean before following Coldron Brook south to explore an area of woodland and its lake. Continuing west the walk crosses farmland by the River Evenlode before returning to the start. The route uses sections of the Wychwood Way and Oxfordshire Way.
