Walk details

The walk will be mostly across the fields to the west of Cholsey, making a loop around Lollingdon Hill, skirting the edge of the village of Aston Tirrold and following some of the small watercourses before picking up the track to St Mary’s Church on our way back, notable amongst other things as the last resting place of the author Agatha Christie. We’ll then make our way back into Cholsey.

The walk is mostly quite flat, apart from one small hill (about 65m ascent in total), but note that as much of the walk is over farmland, some of the paths could be quite muddy so walking boots are definitely recommended.
