Length: 2.7 mi • Est. 1 h 13 m
A circular walk around the lakes of Dinton Pastures Country Park in Berkshire. The park covers more than 300 acres and is open daily throughout the year. It offers a variety of habitats including seven lakes, two rivers, woodland and a number of meadows. The park is a real haven for birders with a variety of wetland birds such as swans, geese, coots, moorhens plus rarer species including bitterns. The walk is flat with no stiles or gates. The paths vary from wider stone paths to wetter riverside mud paths, the latter of which are prone to flooding after very wet weather. Dogs are welcome in the park but should be kept under control. In a couple of places dogs need to be on leads to protect the birds (these areas are clearly signed). Approximate time 1.5 hours.Show more

A circular pub walk from the Wheelwrights Arms near Hurst, Berkshire. The Wheelwrights is a regular in the CAMRA good beer guide and holds the cask marque so there are always plenty of good ales to choose from. The walk explores the lakes within the adjacent Dinton Pastures before striking out across local footpaths and lanes. The walk is relatively flat. The paths can get quite muddy and sometimes a little overgrown in places. You will need to negotiate five stiles along the way. There are a few sections of road walking on roads without pavements so take care of traffic at these points. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.Show more
