A circular walk from the pretty village of Kingsclere in Hampshire. The route heads south, exploring the beautiful rolling Hampshire Downs with peaceful tracks and beautiful views throughout. Halfway round, the walk leads you through the idyllic village of Hannington with its pretty village green and imposing church. The route has several climbs and descents throughout. The vast majority of the route follows bridleway tracks, some tarmac or stone which give a firm walking surface, but also some grass stretches which can get muddy and slippery. There is one stretch of footpath which passes through a pasture, sometimes holding cattle, although this can be avoided if you prefer. You will need to negotiate a few staggered barriers, a couple of flights of steps, some bridle gates plus three kissing gates, but there are no stiles on route. Some of the tracks have sheep pastures alongside, enclosed with electric fencing so take care with children and dogs. Allow 3 hours.
