Starting from the centre of Wargrave where there are four(!) pubs, the walk heads up School Lane and Wargrave Hill to leave Wargrave Village and pass out into the countryside. After crossing a field, the walk enters the Hennerton Golf Club, where there are some great views from the hills. After descending into a valley, there is a climb on the other side with the opportunity to look back over the golf course.

From here, more country lane-walking follows before heading across fields and past the manor into Crazies Hill. Here there is an opportunity to stop at another pub.

From Crazies Hill, the walk heads through woodland and some muddy tracks. The compensation is the woodland views, especially during the autumnal months.

After leaving the woodland section, the walk crosses farmland before rejoining Wargrave Hill and the route back into the centre of the village. From here you have the chance to sample three further pubs and check out the village itself.

After a couple of months mapping out several flattish walks of my own, it was nice to use someone else's route and get a few ups and downs. I had a great day for it - and as a bonus Wargrave was having a "Village in Knit" sort of week. Everything that didn't move was covered in knitting. See some of my photos http://www.frogslegs.org/walks/2013_Crazies_Hill/

Walk re-visited and minor updates made. Use of walking stick recommended to steady yourself in muddy sections. White Hart Hotel was not open on the day I walked the route (sunday lunchtime). Please can anyone shed any light on this pub ?
