pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Tally Ho in Eversley, on the border between Berkshire and 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 walk follows a section of the Blackwater Valley Path, a long-distance path which meanders alongside the River Blackwater, then continues through the beautiful Bramshill Forest, before returning via the pretty old ford, weir and mill at Lower Common. 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. The paths are mostly unmade and can be a little overgrown in the summer and can get very muddy after rain and in winter (when wellies are recommended). The route passes through several paddocks that are likely to be holding horses, so take care with children and dogs. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, some sleeper bridges, a staggered barrier and a long, narrow footbridge over the ford. On the main loop, there is just one low stile (which has a wide and tall gap for dogs to pass through). There is an optional detour to visit a tranquil fishing lake, and this stretch includes an additional five stiles (ten if you count there and back), all of which have gaps in the fences suitable for most dogs. Allow 2 to 2.5 hours.

Beautiful walk on a warm sunny day, took the baby in the carrier too and she loved it. Would definitely do again but would avoid after wet weather, it looks potentially very muddy in some areas!

Dec 9th - part of footpath closed at start of loop section of walk. We used the GPS to navigate along forest tracks to the lake and were then able to rejoin the route. Nice walk though didn't realise until starting that a fairly large section involves returning on the same path you take as far as the ford. The longer Eversley walk 8 miles covers a similar area and is much more varied and worth the effort if you have time. Electric fence easily unhooked and not an issue for us.

Beautiful easy walk. Didn't come across any electric fence. Walked to the lake which was idyllic. Lovely warm and sunny day too.
