A walk around the pretty village of Charsfield which initially climbs to give good views over the village and then travels along quiet country lanes and wide footpaths crossing orchards and arable land. The classic book 'Akenfield: Portrait of an English Village' by Ronald Blythe is based upon the village of Charsfield. The Three Horseshoes public house makes a good refreshment stop after the walk. There are no stiles or gates to negotiate and whilst the lanes carry little traffic, care should be taken along these sections. Approximate time 2 hours.

We parked in the Three Horseshoes car park with the permission of the landlord at 11am. The walk was very pleasant and interesting with the village and orchards and there was a nice friendly pub at the end for lunch. PS the pub closes st 2pm.
