Blewbury Park


Blewbury park is my children's most favourite park. Like Appleford park, it is easy to find.  It is off the A417 London Road. It is directly opposite Savages garden centre (teas, coffees, breakfast, lunch available) and next to the graveyard. There is a large car park a little way off the main road just outside the park grounds.

Find this park on the google map I made for you. 

When we went last Sunday there was a portaloo in the park grounds. I am not sure if this is for public use or just for cricket spectators/ players (the cricket ground is set closer to the main road). 


Blewbury park is really quite something. It probably has the best zip wire of all the parks we have thus far visited. It has some amazing swings - of four varieties - and the best climbing pyramids I have ever seen. There is a lot of shade from the purpose built wooden gazebo, a climbing frame/ fireman's pole/ slide and also a large skate park. This park is most definitely not for small children, on the whole, as the equipment is on the 'chunkier' side.

Still more swings.


There is another park in Blewbury - for smaller children. It can be found at the opposite side, near the post office. I shall visit shortly. 


There is a school, too.


Blewbury has a very active village society and is very 'arty'. A number of local artists live here. 


Between Blewbury and the Astons there is a very noticeable land mark - Blewburton Hill. It is accessible and offers great views. Behind the recreation ground there are paths towards Chilton - ideal for walkers and cyclists. 




Pubs in Blewbury

There are two pubs in Blewbury. The Red Lion and The Barley Mow. I haven't been to either yet but one day I will!
