An 8 mile circular walk starting in Bramshill Forest and taking in the local woodland, paddocks, riverside paths and the pretty village of Eversley. The route gives a lovely mix of environments and you'll see plenty of wildlife including butterflies, damselflies, birds, deer and horses (the latter not being wild of course!). There are several pubs within Eversley that you pass by if you want refreshments on the way round.
The route is relatively flat with just a few gentle gradients. Some of the paths can be quite overgrown, muddy and narrow at certain times of the year so good waterproof boots and protective clothing for arms and legs (unless you're immune to gorse and nettles!) are recommended. The walk passes through narrow paths within Bramshill Forest (where you may come across adders) and several paddocks containing horses so take particular care with dogs at these points. There are several kissing gates on route plus three stiles – all of these have wooden fence surrounds which were certainly open enough for our standard poodle to fit through. Approximate time 3 to 4 hours.
Bramshill Forest can be found a few miles east of the A33 about half way between Reading and Basingstoke. The walk starts from the small stone car park for Bramshill Forest which can be found on Bramshill Road, about half way between the junction with St Neot's Road and the junction with Plough Lane. Approximate post code RG27 0RF.
