Home > Oxford on Foot

This book combines the favourite walks of current OxPA members with the earlier, predominantly historical, walks of John Scott (1922-2008), whose notes on four walks in 'unknown Oxford' were passed to OxPA last year. While some updating of the older walks was unavoidable where physical changes to the city had been made we hope that his distinctive style remains to add to the interest of this varied collection.

All the walks are accessible by foot or bus from the City centre. We hope that visitors and residents alike will enjoy discovering more about the less familiar parts of this beautiful city.
