Burghclere and Earlstone Manor

A 4 mile circular walk from the village of Burghclere in Hampshire. This is a particularly peaceful walk, given its proximity to the A34 and the town of Newbury. The route follows bridleway tracks through woodland, plus paths across fields and you will also discover a few beautiful estates along the way.

The walk has several climbs and descents throughout, but there are no steep sections. About a third of the route is on surfaced pavements and tracks, with the remainder following unmade paths, some stretches of which can get muddy at times. There is one short stretch along a quiet road. You will need to negotiate several gates plus one stile (that has a gap underneath that most dogs should be able to fit through). Most of the route is on enclosed paths, but you will need to cross two grass pastures. These were empty when we walked (in December) but they may be holding grazing cattle in the warmer months. Allow 2 hours.

Burghclere village is located in Hampshire, close to the Berkshire border and about 4 miles south of Newbury. The walk starts and finishes in the free car park for Burghclere Sports Club and the Recreation Ground which is on Harts Lane. Approximate post code RG20 9JD.
