The walk begins near the war memorial in Burghclere before heading north out of the village, then turning through woodland near Clere School and emerging in the countryside near Palmers Hill House. The views of the hills are good from here.

Later, the walk passes through the hamlet of Brock's Green before passing through more pleasing countryside and country lanes where the sounds of birdsong are never far away. The route then takes the walker through Arbuthnot Wood before entering the woodland and heathland of Newtown Common, where it turns south.

Another change of scenery follows as the route heads through the woodland of Herbert Plantation before reaching the Ox Drove byway. The walk heads along this before turning back south-east across the fields into Burghclere and the start of the walk. There are plenty of landscapes to take in on the walk.

Did this walk on June 26th after a period of sustained rain. The route was boggy in places and quite overgrown. However was a really good walk with diverse scenery and paths. The directions are spot on and very easy to follow. We actually measured the route as close to 8 miles, but it was fairly flat with a couple of small climbs. would have been nice if there was a pub on route!

Just completed this walk on a lovely sunny day, really good walk, good mix of lanes, woods, paths and good views. Instructions very clear and easy to follow. Well worth doing :)
