An easy and pleasant walk through parkland and along a stretch of the Basingstoke Canal, past the attractive Tundry Pond, an extract from walk 667 for the days when four miles is enough.

The walk starts from St Mary’s Church at Winchfield – a widespread rural parish that has no real centre – and turns along the towpath of the Basingstoke Canal. It then follows a public footpath across Dogmersfield Park and alongside Tundry Pond, before reaching the canal again and following the towpath back to complete the loop. On this last stretch is XThe Barley Mow pub.

The history of the area – the canal, the pillboxes, the park, the pond – makes interesting reading to illustrate your walk – see Additional Info'.
