A circular walk from the village of Wootton St Lawrence, near Basingstoke in Hampshire. The route explores the local footpaths and bridleway tracks, taking you through woodland and open fields with some beautiful views. Along the way you will pass through Malshanger Park, with glimpses of the mansion and the old parkland. This is a particularly peaceful area where you will enjoy a true feeling of escape. The route has long and steady climbs and descents throughout, but there are no particularly steep sections. About a third of the route follows tarmac or stone tracks, but the remainder of the woodland and unmade tracks can get very muddy at times. You will need to negotiate two stiles (both of which have open fencing or gateways alongside for dogs to pass through) on route. Most of the surrounding land is arable, but there is one sheep field that you will need to pass through or alongside (depending on the current position of the temporary fencing). Allow 3 hours.

Good walk through farmland and woodland, little overgrown in places but otherwise ok.

Most of the directions were good a couple of the way markers difficult to see at least I missed a few and re traced my steps, even found the flooded road with no way past so deep breaths and go through

Lovely easy walk with solid paths, mostly wide enough fir two. Dogs loved it. We started in Malshanger so didn’t actually go into Wootton st Lawrence. Fantastic views. A perfect May walk. Thank you.

Completed this walk this morning (stopping for lunch half way round) the long stretch of road at the begining is a little boring but as soon as you are off the road and into the fields / woodland it is perfect.

We are just finishing the walk. Really lovely, lots of sheep, blackberries and birds of prey. Found a couple of great spots to stop for a mug of coffee from the flask. Nice and quiet didn't see another person the whole time. Added to favourites!
