We begin our lovely Kintbury Circular walk from Kintbury Station car at 11.15am.
For those of you travelling by train there is a train from Reading Station at 10.34am which gets you into Kintbury at 11.01. There is a small car park at the station but spaces are limited. If travelling by car there are a few roads near by that offer permit free parking.
The walk starts with a teenie bit of road walking to get out of the village centre before heading off through lovely fields and farmland heading towards a little area known as Skew-whiff which hopefully won’t be the theme of the walk. We then take in some woodlands around Hampstead Marshall before we head to Hamstead lock for the return leg along the Kennet and Avon Canal.
The terrain is mixed with a few hills in there but if I can do it you can too! Plus the end of the walk is along the canal so a nice easy terrain to navigate should legs be aching towards the end.
Unfortunately, there will not be any pub stops on this walk so please ensure you bring lunch and plenty to drink.
