The walk starts in Caversham Park Village north of Reading and is readily accessible by public transport. The route rapidly disappears into a tree-lined path before re-emerging in the countryside near Littlestead Green. Dunsden Green follows next, as well as the fantastic gardens of the house in Waymark 05 (see photograph). The route then takes the green Tagg Lane (with its muddy bits) before heading across the fields to reach Comp Wood. After passing through Comp Wood, enjoy the views of the Chilterns towards Crowsley before walking the dips and elevations of the fantastic landscape around Crowsley Grange. After visiting Crowsley, the walk cuts across more fields to reach Bird Wood and the Bird in Hand pub. The route cuts across open fields past the intriguingly named Cucumber Plantation to reach Chalkhouse Green with its array of interesting cottages. The walk proceeds down and later up the Chalkhouse Green Lane to return to Caversham Park Village via the scenic Clayfield Copse Local Nature Reserve.

The public house mentioned at WM12 - The Bird in Hand is now refurbished and fully open [November 2010]. Excellent warm welcome from the landlord, good beer and a truly exceptional menu. Highly recommended for a mid walk break.
