pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Horse and Groom in Hare Hatch, Berkshire. The Horse and Groom is a 300 year old coaching inn with beautiful beams and flagstones. The walk gives you chance to explore the surrounding countryside, a mixture of large arable fields and horse paddocks with a few small sections of woodland and lovely views. The walk is almost entirely flat and follows a mixture of field edge paths and grass tracks some of which can be a little overgrown, narrow and/or muddy at different times of the year. There are a couple of short sections of road walking so take care of traffic at these points. You will need to negotiate 6 stiles, the last 3 of which have wire fenced surrounds so dogs may need a lift over. Two of the fields are likely to be holding horses so take care with children and dogs. Approximate time 1.5 hours.

The first 15-20 mins of this walk is reasonable, venturing through through horse paddocks and crop fields. Beyond that however, it's just a long straight line down the side of a fast (and noisy) train line, followed by walking back up 40/60 mile hour roads which aren't especially pleasant.
