Length: 1.7 mi • Est. 42 m
A circular walk from Aldermaston Wharf in West Berkshire. The walk starts at the visitor centre on the Kennet and Avon Canal before joining rural tracks and paths across several waterways and fields to reach the adjacent village of Padworth with a beautiful church, imposing mansion house and old parkland. The return leg follows a pretty stretch of the River Kennet. The walk is relatively flat with just a couple of very gentle slopes. The paths follow unmade tracks and grass paths across fields, parkland and alongside the river, all of which can be very muddy after rain and in the winter months. You will need to negotiate several gates, narrow footbridges and one stile (which is very low and also has open fence surrounds to allow dogs to pass through). You will be sharing a couple of the fields with horses and one field occasionally holds cattle, so take particular care with dogs. Allow 1.5 hours. Show more

Length: 2.6 mi • Est. 1 h 12 m
A circular walk from the West Berkshire village of Beenham. The route follows pretty stretches of woodland and arable fields to reach the nearby village of Upper Woolhampton where you'll have chance to admire the buildings of Douai Abbey, a Benedictine monastery. The walk returns through arable fields, grazing pastures and mixed woodlands where you'll enjoy a host of wildlife and wild flowers. The walk has a few gentle inclines and the woodland paths and pastures can be very muddy at certain times of the year so waterproof boots are recommended. There is one section of road walking so take care of traffic at this point and two of the fields are likely to be holding cattle so take care with dogs. There are three stiles to negotiate and all of these have open wooden fence surrounds so should be straightforward for most dogs. Allow 1 to 1.5 hours. Show more
