A circular walk of byways and field tracks, starting near Burkham in Hampshire. It starts with a path through part of Home Farm which is 338 acres of woodland and open grassland owned by the Woodland Trust. The walk then continues through fields to the village of Bradley where it joins part of the long-distance Three Castles Path to Lower Wield. Just after Lower Wield there is a short road section (with a pub if you need refreshment) and then a byway leads to the Ox Drove Way which takes you back to Home Farm. The route is well away from major roads so is very peaceful. Most of the walk is on the flat with some gentle slopes. There are some very short sections of quiet road but mainly the route is on byways or along field edges. Many of the tracks were muddy after wet weather. There are various gates including kissing gates - and although there were a few stiles, all of those had adjacent, unlocked, five bar gates which could be used instead. Allow 2.5 to 3 hours.

Great walk, with great views on pleasant rolling hills, just the chirping of birds for lots of it. Lovely pub to stop at for a refresh! Thanks again, another great suggestion.

Nice walk, fairly flat, wet underfoot at the beginning and end, all paths were easy to follow apart from one field where we just went round the edge rather than straight across.

First half of the walk has some lovely views and nothing but the sound of nature. In the middle you walk through the back garden of one of the nicest houses I've seen with an incredible tree house. The last bit is a bit muddy on the byways but was to be expected. Took me 2 hours and 20 mins with two short coffee breaks. Thanks �
