A 3 mile circular walk from the small village of Brimpton in Berkshire. The walking route takes in lovely peaceful stretches of open crop fields with lovely views across the valley and also follows a meandering section of the idyllic River Enborne.
The walk has just a few gentle slopes and the paths are all a good width, with even the field-edge paths having dedicated grass tracks. There is one stile to negotiate (with a very large gap alongside for dogs) and a few single gates. The paths (particularly alongside the river) can get very muddy after periods of rain and in winter. Approximate time 1 to 1.5 hours.
Brimpton is located about one mile south of the A4 Bath Road, between Woolhampton and Thatcham. The walk starts and finishes from the village church, St Peter's, which has a very tall spire and so is easy to find. There is a small gravel parking area by the church (take the gravel lane, Church Lane, alongside the war memorial to reach this). If there is a church service in progress please park elsewhere in the village. There is roadside parking on some of the residential side roads, such as Enborne Way and Banister Place. Turn right out of Church Lane, follow the road round to the right and Enborne Way is a road off to the left. Approximate post code for church RG7 4TJ.
