A circular pub walk from the Mill House in North Warnborough, near Hook. The Mill House has its own large mill pond set within beautiful gardens making it the perfect relaxing place for refreshments before or after your walk. The walking route provides a lovely mix of environments, allowing you to explore open heath, mixed woodland, fields and a long stretch of a pretty canal towpath. You'll also have chance to explore the impressive ruins of Odiham Castle along the way. The walk is relatively flat with just a couple of gentle slopes. The paths are a mixture of stone towpaths, quiet lanes and woodland paths, the latter of which can be very muddy so good waterproof footwear is recommended after periods of rain. There are several gates, a few squeeze gaps plus two stiles to negotiate (both of which have adjacent gaps which should be easy for most dogs). There is one short section of road walking so take care with children here. The heath is grazed by cattle for conservation and one field may be holding a couple of smallholding cows so take care with dogs. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours. Show more
