APPROACHING FROM OXFORD OR THE SOUTH AND WEST OF THE CITY
Wherever you start your journey, your aim should be to reach the major ‘London Road’ (sometimes called ‘Headington’) roundabout to the East of the City. This sits at the point where the Eastern Bypass (A 4142) and the Northern Bypass (A40) meet though in practice it is one continuous road. The roundabout also links with the A40 to London which is the road you will want.
At all costs avoid being enticed into the centre of Oxford!

Proceed for approximately two miles. Exit left at the sign to Holton and Wheatley

Turn left following the sign to Holton

If in any doubt keep bearing right along the same road
