Cycle track to Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre


View Larger Map

A short cycle track/footpath (marked with blue dots on the above map) offers a route from central Headington to the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. It is also accessible from Mattock Close.

From the London Road:

  • Go down either New High Street or Kennett Road (the latter has a contra-flow cycle lane)
  • Near the bottom of New High Street, or at the end of Kennett Road, turn left into Bateman Street
  • Turn right into Gardiner Street, and the the track is at the end on the right.

You will find yourself almost immediately in the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.

Although this is not an official through route, if you live between Windmill Road and New High Street it offers a short cut if you take one of the Old Road buses and get off outside the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. It is probably best to locate the footpath from the London Road end first, as it is not signposted from the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.

There is a tiny communal garden beside the track which Low Carbon Headington planted with fruit trees. These were vandalized in April 2011:
