Getting There

This interesting and varied circular walk visits some of the less known green bits of north-west Bracknell in Berkshire, including meadows, bluebell woods, copses, and tree-lined paths. It also explores some local history and takes the walker to some surprising viewpoints. It was inspired by a challenge from Binfield Parish Council to connect up a series of paths, and a walk published in the 1970s by local historian and walker, Robin Mosses. Despite the fact that you are walking on the outskirts of Bracknell, bits of this walk can be challenging and you should dress accordingly. The walk has a few kissing gates and at least one V-shaped chain-gate. You will need to follow a few sections alongside roads, including a brief section of a dual carriageway slip-road, and there are several road crossings that need particular care. A few bits of path can get overgrown in summer and some sections of the route get muddy in winter. There are two stiles on the route, but at the time of writing you could walk around the sides of both of them. Allow 2.5 hours.

The walk starts at Pope's Meadow car park. Approximate post code RG42 4BB and OS Ref 845699. The car park is on the west side of St Mark's Road, just to the north of its junction with London Road. There are regular buses between Bracknell town centre and this junction.

Started off ok but the trail ended up being the worst one I’ve walked on here. Once you leave the fields at the start it becomes pretty unpleasant. Overgrown tatty paths with piles of rubbish everywhere. Dirty old portacabins, horrible dark tunnels, busy roads and just generally industrial and nothing nice to look at. The only pleasant part of the last three quarters of the route was the walk through Jennets Park and the copse. Wouldn’t recommend at all!

A couple of updates on this walk. I will revise the walk when the development mentioned below is completed: - As you approach Piglittle Meadow, the path is diverted round the Amen Corner North building site. Follow the diversion and go through a gate by a Piglittle Meadow sign and then turn left to follow the wood-chip path through a copse. When the path leaves the copse it climbs to the oak tree mentioned in the instructions. I think this diversion improves the walk. - When you reach the roundabout under the A329M I recommend that you follow the alternative route up London Road as the slip-road verge is currently overgrown. - Shortly after the instructions mention passing between concrete posts. There is now a shiny new kissing gate at this point.

First to Review

This is a walk of two different halves. The first half of the walk is through countryside, with the second half through urban Bracknell. There are a few areas where you walk beside busy roads and care is needed. Give the walk a try and leave your feedback.
