This flat circular walk follows bridleways and country lanes into the countryside to the northeast of Binfield in Berkshire, criss-crossing the River Cut. The first half of the route can get muddy in winter, but it is usually passable. Although half of the walk is along lanes, most of these are normally quiet. There is one section (along Bottle Lane) that can be busy at certain times of day, so this walk is not ideal for small children or dogs. There are no stiles or other difficult obstacles and you will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock. This is one of a series of walks originally described by local historian and walker Robin Mosses, and published in "Walks and Rides around Binfield". Robin died in 2014, and this route passes, but does not take, a path named in his memory.

Started off nicely down a bridle way. Then onto tarmac lanes, some busy, some less so. But however quiet, I really don’t like about half my walk on tarmac.

Easy walk. Pleasant but contains roads without footpaths. Not suitable for young kids or pushchairs.
