A circular walk from the village of Theale, near Reading in Berkshire. Beginning in Theale's High Street, the walk soon leaves behind the residential streets to pass the golf course and another hamlet before crossing farmland to reach the nearby village of Sulham. The return leg follows an ancient lane (now a bridleway) passing through the historic Sulham Estate. The route is relatively flat with just a few gentle gradients. Whilst most of the route follows tarmac and stone paths, about one third of it follows woodland and field paths that can get quite muddy after periods of rain. There are a few gates plus three stiles (two will be easy for dogs with large gaps alongside, but one has a tight wooden fence surround that larger dogs may find more difficult to squeeze through). One of the fields may be holding livestock. Approximate time 2 hours.

Pleasant walk - best done clockwise, to leave the scenic and quaintly named Nunhide Lane to the final stretch.

Other than crossing the motorway twice this is a beautiful and peaceful route. Lots of opportunities to let a dog off the lead too.
