A circular pub walk from the Tally Ho in Eversley, in north-east Hampshire. The Tally Ho is a beautiful Hampshire farmhouse lovingly converted to a great pub with open fires in the winter and an enormous garden to enjoy in the summer. The short walk follows a section of the Blackwater Valley path, a long distance path which meanders alongside the River Blackwater, to reach the beautiful old ford, weir and mill at nearby Lower Common. If you wish, there’s chance to extend the walk by exploring Bramshill Forest at this point. The return leg follows a quiet lane and woodland footpath before joining the main road back to the pub. You’ll have chance to meet lots of horses in the paddocks along the way and enjoy the beautiful River Blackwater which is a haven for a variety of wildlife. The walk is almost entirely flat and the paths can be a little overgrown in the summer and can get muddy after rain and in the winter. The route passes through three paddocks that are likely to be holding horses so take care with children and dogs. You will need to negotiate several gates, a long narrow footbridge and two stiles (both of which have open fencing surrounds which should be suitable for most dogs to pass through). Allow 1 hour.
