Kingsclere Circular (10 miles) @ Kingsclere
Mar 1 @ 10:30 am – 4:30 pm

Meeting point: Meet in the White Hill car park (free parking) by the B3051 Winchester Road, approximately 1.5 miles south of Kingsclere. This is not far from the A34, making it relatively easy to get to from Oxfordshire. The car park is just off the road up a short track. There is also extra parking on the roadside. Unfortunately the walk cannot be reached by public transport: please share lifts if possible. Grid Ref: SU516565. Approximate post code is RG25 3EJ (note: not exact).

We start by following the Wayfarer’s Walk to North Oakley, then pass through Hannington before stopping for lunch in the hills. Much of the walk is over hilltops giving excellent views across the downs. We will have a quick pub stop at The Crown in Kingsclere before the final 2.5 miles back to the car park. There is some mud in low lying areas so please bring suitable footwear. Thanks to the Berkshire Walkers for the route.
