Nowadays an old wooden style near the Wootton Road roundabout makes one end of an old right of way between garden fences. The footpath bypasses the obsolete style, and may have previously gone further.
The path is behind the houses of Bourlon Wood, one of a number of roads in this area named after WWI battlefields. It also passes an area of green, half of which is surrounded by a fence with a notice saying ‘No Dogs’. There is no play equipment.
The right of way comes out near a footbridge over the A34 that heads over to Shippon. Crossing the Copenhagen Drive can be difficult at this point as it is part of the Abingdon outer circular way.
The footbridge also connects Abingdon to the Wildmoor Allotments, owned by Abingdon-on-Thames Town Council.
I believe the council lease the allotments from a local farmer.
The footpath runs between fields
and comes out on the drive of Stowford House Care Home in Shippon on the Faringdon Road.
The Faringdon Road connects Shippon and Abingdon by way of a bridge over the A34 and Copenhagen Drive.
