A 3 mile walk from the West Berkshire village of Cold Ash taking in the quiet village streets, local farmland and the many woodland copses that surround the village. The village lanes give you chance to see the variety of local properties and the long stretches of holly trees. The woodlands are beautiful all year round and early on in the walk you will be rewarded with stunning views over the hills and woodlands to the north east.
There are only a few gentle ascents/descents and the tracks are mostly well made but the field and woodland paths can be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles or kissing gates – just a few easy to use single gates making the walk easy access. You will pass through a field holding cattle (sometimes with a bull) or horses at one point so take care with dogs. Approximate time 1.5 hours.
The walk starts at the village hall (Acland Hall) in Cold Ash. The hall has a free car park which serves all the site facilities – the recreation ground, Parish Hall and Pre-School. It is situated on Hermitage Road opposite Woodside (a residential street). Approximate post code RG18 9JH.
