pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Packhorse near Mapledurham in South Oxfordshire. The Packhorse was once a farm within the Mapledurham House estate dating back to the 1600s, but now provides an ideal place to enjoy refreshments before or after a walk in the Chilterns. The walking route performs a simple loop around this southern section of the Chilterns AONB, including a short stretch of the Chiltern Way, with chance to enjoy small belts of woodland, open fields and village lanes. The walk has a few gentle gradients, there are no gates and just one stile (with a dog gate beneath which is large enough for most dogs). The route follows a mixture of lanes plus field and woodland footpaths, some of which can be quite muddy in winter and after rain. There are a couple of sections of road walking with no pavements so take particular care along these parts of the route. Allow 1.5 hours.

Nice little walk. Around point 2/3 we had to adjust. Map was helpful. Gap is in the middle of field

Nice walk with some great rural sections. Little bit too much road albeit mostly fairly quiet. We walked in good weather and some paths quite muddy.
