A walk around the lanes and fields in the parish of Binfield in Berkshire. Until the early 19th century Binfield was situated in Windsor Forest and the remains of the oak tree at the Stag and Hounds public house is thought to have been in the middle of the forest. Binfield has connections with many famous historic characters including Alexander Pope and William Pitt. The walk is relatively flat but does follow field edges which will be very muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles, but a number of chain gates (see photos) which are opened by pushing apart the two sides. These are quite easy for dogs to negotiate but would be impossible for any pushchairs/wheelchairs.

The oak tree referred to in the introduction was actually an elm, known as the Centre Elm, which was probably an early victim of Dutch Elm Disease. The remnants were inexplicably removed in 2003. There are various local stories about people hiding inside the elm to escape the law or rob passers-by.
