This long-distance path runs between Shakespeare's Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon and Shakespeare's Globe, London. Using existing footpaths, bridleways and a few minor roads, the path has been planned to follow, as closely as possible, a route that Shakespeare may have taken on some of his journeys back and forth between his home at Stratford-upon-Avon and the city where he spent most of his productive years [Shakespeare's Way Association].

This trail covers the section of the footpath from the Warwickshire border north west of Chipping Norton to Oxfordshire's border with Buckinghamshire near Stonor.

We had to walk a Hugh loop down a dual carriageway pick up the trail the other side of this farmers land
