Twyford - River Loddon - Stanlake Park - Ruscombe - Twyford Circular

The walk starts in the small town of Twyford before heading south-west through the Loddon Nature Reserve and running parallel to the man-made lakes. The route skirts south of Twyford, passing near a vineyard before heading through scenic fields to reach the hamlet of Ruscombe. The final stretch of the walk involves taking in the many different buildings in Twyford before returning to the railway station and the start of the walk.

Following Gavin’s comments I have walked the route and updated WM09 as route through field has changed. Also revisited content and updated prices, pub names etc.

Very pleasant walk, nothing too strenuous, with not even a puddle to be seen, let alone any mud on the day I went. The only addition I'd make to the directions is at WM09. Once you have left the field by the metal bridge, turn left to follow the path into the woods. Do not follow the path directly ahead. I tried this for 10 minutes or so but never found a way out of the woods, instead just ending up back at the metal bridge.

Great walk on a hot summer day as there are a lot of shady parts. Some ponies and horses, but no cows. Some beautiful views. I can see how it can get really muddy during the wetter days as even now when we haven't had rain for a while there was still a muddy stretch in the forest. Overall a great walk!

I'm sure this is a great walk in August but I'd go so far as to say it is totally impractical in the wet winter months. Almost every path and bridleway was a sea of thick, glutinous mud, which made for very hard going. The ford at WM05 had flooded the entire road junction. We had to abandon the walk at WM09 as the woodland section was flooded beyond the point at which it was passable. Not the most fun I've ever had with my wellies on!

A really delightful walk; we had wonderful weather, which helped, but the views and stop off at the vineyard made it very enjoyable indeed. The footpath at point 4 is now open, so there are no need for any de-tours. Thoroughly recommend it and we will be doing it again.

Drove 20 miles yesterday to do this walk - imagine our disappointment when at point 4, we were confronted with a high fence and a sign saying 'Footpath closed'. Unlike a road, no diversion was offered, so we set off in an attempt at getting back on track, but sadly, did not manage it. Would be good to know how long that path will be out of action for.

Did 'most' of this walk today. It's a lovely route but at this time of year oh so muddy, I have never seen as much mud (which is why we cut it short in the end). Will try again in the summer I think. We did the first part and cut off the Ruscombe section. What we did was very dog friendly and the little ponies were lovely, just wanted attention :)
