Final Steps of 2018…, 6.5 miles, easy

My personal challenge for 2018 was to walk (a minimum of!) 10k steps EVERY DAY, so with this in mind, I’d like to invite you to join me on my 365th consecutive day with some leisurely steps around Hosehill Lake.

The walk will start at 13:25subject to the 13:12 departure from Reading arriving on time (due at Theale 13:21). If the train is delayed, the walk will be too.

This will be an easy walk (I hope!), mainly spent heading round the lake anticlockwise, with minimal road walking and passing multiple copses. At one stage we will be able to hear the dulcet tones of the M4, what a treat!
We will finish at the Fox & Hounds pub in Sheffield Bottom – apparently people like pub stops? From here it is just under a mile’s walk back to the station where trains back to Reading run twice an hour.

It may well be muddy, so please bring appropriate footwear as well as waterproofs (or an umbrella?) if raining. There will not be a lunch stop on this walk so please eat beforehand. Feel free to bring any snacks you may want as well as some water.
