This two-mile walk with local historian Mark Davies, traces the old south-western municipal and county boundaries, on a route followed by Oxford’s mayors for centuries as part of the ceremonial ‘riding of the franchise’ (or liberty). It includes some steps and potentially muddy footpaths. It complements two previous walks of the north-western boundary in 2019.

Tickets: £9. Maximum numbers: 20.
