This circular walk follows the Berkshire recreational route signs, starting and finishing at Aldermaston Wharf tea rooms. The first half crosses the River Kennet and then gently climbs through farmland. The second part mostly follows the hilltop, giving good views down into the valley. The final part is along the towpath of the Kennet and Avon Canal. There are a few, very quiet road sections, but most of the walk is along easy to follow and marked paths. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus two stiles and you may be sharing one field with cattle or horses. (The tea rooms are closed for refurbishment from Oct 17 to Jan 18, but it is still possible to park and follow this route). Allow 3 hours.

Harrowing. Was almost killed by a stampede of horses. Imagine being Mufasa and merely surviving. Would not recommend.
