Meet at the Oxford-bound bus stop at the Packhorse on Woodcote Road (this is on the other side of the road and approximately 100m towards Reading from the pub) at 19.35, shortly after the arrival of the X40 bus leaving Station Road in Reading (stop SB) at 19.20. The walk leader intends to travel on this bus (although probably will board at one of the Caversham stops); if it is delayed the start of the walk will be as well. Parking is available at the pub.

Please note that there are two pubs with similar names on this road. The walk DOES NOT begin at the Pack Saddle, which is the first of the two you will reach coming from the Reading direction. Please continue to drive or remain on the bus to the Packhorse, which is just under 1 mile further on.

This is a pleasant evening stroll through the Oxfordshire countryside. Starting at the bus stop, we will head along field paths and back lanes before reaching the Chiltern Way Extension near Caversham Heath Golf Club. We then follow this through Chazey Heath and Tokers Green, before returning to the Packhorse through Bardolph’s Wood
