This is an easy and very pleasant walk near the attractive village of Rotherwick in North East Hampshire, criss-crossing various stretches of the River Loddon as it meanders its way to join the Thames near Reading.

Rotherwick has been described as a jewel in North East Hampshire. There are many interesting buildings, several of which date from the 17th Century, and the village hall is well worth seeing. Many visitors to Rotherwick are intrigued by the size and appearance of this village hall, built in 1932 as a memorial to a young American. It has its own website.

There are two pubs in Rotherwick, the Coach and Horses and the Falcon. The village church dates from the 13th Century.

This four-mile walk can be combined with Walk 4267 to make a neat figure-of-eight and an eight mile walk, with the village of Rotherwick and the two pubs at the centre.

If you are local, this walk is a must. Short, very pleasant and scenic. Perfect for a quick walk before lunch at just four miles.

Did this walk today in the winter sunshine. It's absolutely lovely, rivers and streams galore, lots of footbridges to cross. Quite muddy in parts (walked in February!) but not as bad as some riverside walks! Mr Clayton is a very reliable walk author and this walk is no exception. Starts and ends at a decent pub but if you want Sunday lunch you will need to book! Recommended.
