Langdon Wood, Aston UpthorpeStreet Map


Leave Oxford on the A34 heading South. Leave the A34 at the Chilton/Harwell exit and take the minor road in the direction of West Hagbourne. Take the first right to Upton and turn right onto the A417. Continue through Blewbury and pass Blewburton Hill fort on your left. At the next junction (1.75 kms after leaving Blewbury) turn right onto a hardtop track directly opposite the minor road (Spring Lane) to Aston Upthorpe. Follow this track South for approximately 1 km to a large barn. If it's wet this is the safest place to park. Alternatively, take the right fork along the valley bottom and follow the track to the turn-off to the Gamekeeper's Cottage where there is limited room to park. Do not block access to the cottage or the main track. Langdon Wood covers the West facing slope of Langdon Hill which is ahead of you to your left.
