A circular pub walk from The Dundas Arms in Kintbury, Berkshire. The Dundas Arms is situated directly alongside the Kennet and Avon Canal, with a vast garden that is the perfect spot for post-walk refreshments. The walking route follows an idyllic stretch of towpath leading you between the river and canal, then climbs high onto Irish Hill for glorious views before looping through the undulating farmland of rolling fields, pretty copses and quiet lanes. The walk has a few steady gradients, plus a couple of steeper climbs up onto Irish Hill. It follows a mixture of towpath, field paths, farm tracks and quiet lanes, with some stretches that can get muddy at times. You will need to negotiate 7 stiles, about half of which have enclosed wire fence surrounds, so dogs will need a lift over these. Most of the route is through arable land or fenced away from pastures, however you will cross one pasture that may be holding dairy cattle, this pasture can easily be avoided by following a stretch of quiet lane instead. Allow 2 to 2.5 hours.

Nice 2 hour walk on mixture of canal towpath, tracks, fields and lanes through the beautiful Berks countryside. Finishes at the Dundas Arms right in the canal got a well earned pint. Directions on the app were spot on and accurate.
