Meet at Hungerford station for an 11.15am start. If you are coming from Reading, take the 10.34am train which will arrive at Hungerford station for 11.09am. If the train is late, the start of the walk will be too. Parking is available at Hungerford station but charges are applicable.
This walk will start with us walking along the Kennet and Avon canal, once leaving the canal we will head north towards Cake Wood (I doubt we will see or find any cakes there). We will continue our and go past the very impressive Littlecote House and have the chance to visit the Roman Villa remains in the grounds of the house.
After our visit here we will start heading back towards Hungerford, passing Furze Hill before crossing Freemans Marsh and joining back up with the Kennet and Avon Canal. Once we are back in Hungerford we will go and visit one of the friendly ale houses for a well-earned drink or two!
The footpaths may be a bit muddy so please wear suitable footwear.
Please bring a packed lunch and something to drink.
