(D/A) Start at the footpath by Galanos House. Enter the field after the gate and turn left, follow the field around and keep going straight on, until you reach a farm drive.
(1) Turn left and look for a footpath sign soon on the right. You will enter a field used by horses, the ground is very uneven. Climb the fence at the end of this field, then you enter a large arable field, head for the furthest left corner, it is easier to walk around the edge.
(2) At the corner, you reach Welsh road East. Turn right and follow carefully (traffic can be quite fast) the road for about half a mile. At a layby on the right, you will find a footpath signpost, follow this uphill into a field. At the top of a hill you reach a farm, follow the signposts. You will be walking on a quiet road, as you go downhill after at least half a mile you will see a footpath signpost, take this to reach the summit of a hill in fields.
(3) After a descent, you will reach the main Southam Banbury road, cross it into Ladbroke. Take the footpath on the left, turn right at the end of it then left int School Lane. When you see the church in front of you, take a footpath on your right over the fields. Follow this footpath back into Southam.(D/A)
