Stoke Row and Wyford Court

This is a very straightforward walk, forming a circuit from Stoke Row, a small village a few miles north of Reading. It almost immediately enters woodland, beech for the most part, then continues thus for nearly all the walk. Halfway round it comes out into the open, as we skirt the grounds of Wyfold Court. Finally we return to Stoke Row and pass the Maharajah's Well, donated to the village in 1864 by the Maharajah of Benares. This walk, which goes east and south from the village, could form a companion walk with Walk 34, which Andrew Long has devised to take you in a circuit west from Stoke Row.

Most of the route is on bridleways, some on footpaths and a very short distance on pavements. There is one stile. Take note when following the route through the woods of the white arrows painted on the trees – an essential additional guide.

Precisely as advertised, this is a pleasant short walk; mostly on wooded bridleways and very easily navigated at that, with excellent directions. Parking on Newlands Lane next to the Independent Chapel was easy and the Cherry Tree ideally situated for a pint at the end. Recommended,
