Stepping Stones

The stepping stones are the remnants of a weir on the River Thame. There was also a bridge over the weir in the nineteeth century. The river was crossed using the bridge but when it fell into disrepair it became an issue as to whether it was a public bridge and the responsibility of the local authority. When bridge disappeared there were various attempts to have the County Council recognise a Public Right of Way across the river where the footpaths from Little Milton, Stadhamton and Cuddesdon converged. In 2016 there was Public Enquiry into a Modification  Order granted by Oxfordshire County Council to add a footpath to the Definitive Map. This was appealed against by local landowners and the Modification Order was refused. The Inspectors Report is attached as the stepping stones are a constant point of interest by walkers.
