Today we be a traversing many of the footpaths that became oh so familiar to the walk leader during the past eighteen months or more.

Walk details

Our route takes out into Emmer Green and onto the the muddy bridleway that leads us to Chalkhouse Green and onward to the 160 acre country estate of Crowsley Park. Somewhere around here we may pause for our light lunch. We continue over varied terrain of both soft farmland which naturally could be muddy at this time of year and harder surfaces. We aim to pause for refreshments at Loddon brewery. They serve non acholic drinks, snacks, hopefully a cider and their standard beers that they brew on site. Quicker drinkers may have time for a 2nd pint if weather is decent but we will try to crack on within 45-60 minutes. The final stretch take us back to our cars.
