A circular walk from the Berkshire village of Kintbury, one of the most sought after places to live in England. The walk follows a short section of the Kennet and Avon Canal then heads south through beautiful local pastures and meadows before looping back into the village passing the church and village centre. The walk includes just a few gentle gradients and some of the paths can get quite muddy at certain times of the year. There are several kissing gates and a total of 9 stiles whilst most of these have open fencing surrounds or purpose built adjacent dog gates, a couple may prove a bit trickier for dogs so they may need a lift over. You may come across livestock in some of the fields. There are public toilets in the car park at the start. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

Nice varied walk with excellent directions as always. Only other comment would be that when we did it in September most of the fields had animals in them, so with the road sections as well, it meant the dog was on a lead most of the time.
