Kintbury to Great Bedwyn walk

Quiet fields before lunch, the Test Way (a long, open, ridgewalk, potentially muddy), and a pretty forest walk to return to pretty, canalside Bedwyn.

Kintbury to Great Bedwyn. 14/5/19.

This was a splendid walk of around 13 miles on the West Berks/East Wilts borders, just within the Western boundary of the Network Card. It passes through the village and its church (St Mary's), then on through woods and pastures, eventually passing the former lunch time pub at Lower Green, Inkpen. This is, unfortunately, currently closed, with no imminent plans for re-opening. Thereafter, it's a gentle climb across more fields, to the foot of the ridge, before a stiff ascent for a few hundred yards. Upon reaching the top of Inkpen Hill (291m), there are some wonderful views to be had, so worthwhile! The walk then continues along an appropriately heavily-rutted byway, which, again, affords fine views. There's a very gentle descent, with sightings of the uncommon Lapwing and the first, now unfamiliar, sound of a Cuckoo! A section of road-walking follows, to meet the A338, and then more fields, prior to the very pleasant woodland of Bedwyn Brail. The finale crosses the canal and so back to the station. An excellent day's walking in a very pleasant and tranquil part of the Network zone.

Kintbury Circular. 16/8/10

A 14 mile circular walk from Kintbury station in Berkshire. Passing through woods and pastures en route to the village of Inkpen, then ascending to the ridge at Inkpen Hill. Along the Test Way, past Combe Gibbet before descending to the Kennet and Avon Canal via Hampstead Marshall. In part 2 , the walk descends from the Test Way, via West Woodhay and Hampstead Marshall, to the Kennet and Avon Canal. (Part 1 is from the Station to GR:378 616, approx).
