Route Outline

Set off the beaten track, Adstock remains a quiet and very attractive village with a number of thatched cottages and appealing Victorian buildings. The church of St Cecilia dates from the 12th century, and the doorway and three feet thick interior lower walls bear witness to the Norman origins. It is an intimate, almost cosy little church. The mid 17th century Old Thatched Inn is just that, with a flagstone floor and low but very spacious interior. There is a non-smoking area in the restaurant. Beers on offer are Hook Norton, Ruddles Best and County. There is a garden with children's play facilities. The pub has a large car park but do seek the landlord's permission before parking.
