D'Arcy Dalton Way,


The D'Arcy Dalton Way was created to mark the Oxford Footpath Society's Diamond Jubilee in 1986. It takes its name from Colonel W. P. d'Arcy, a founder member of the Oxfordshire Field Paths Society formed in 1926 and defender of Oxfordshire's rights of way. The idea of the path was to create a link along the western boundary of the county between the Oxford Canal towpath north of Banbury, the Oxfordshire Way, Thames Path and Ridgeway in order to provide long distance circuits combining part or all of the D'Arcy Dalton Way with parts of two or more of the other long distance routes. Oxford, of course, would be the most obvious place to commence such a circular route. However, the D'Arcy Dalton Way is a splendid and rewarding walk in its own right.
