  • A short walk from Widford where you can park the car, then after along the marked path to Swinbrook village then back great for a short leisurely walk in the sunshine  more »
  • At a 40 minutes nice country side walk distance from Burford (6 minutes by car), you can find this nice little church. From the 13th century church of St Oswald, it retains its old mysticism and old fashion style. While it's difficult to find it open (see my pictures for opening times), you can take interior pictures from the windows. Use HDR photo app, and put the phone' s camera very close to the window. You'll appreciate well preserved old paintings on the walls. From here you can keep walking to the next close church: St Mary's Church, Swinbrook
  • Well worth the short walk from Burford. The church is a beautiful little time capsule.
