This gentle stretching walk in a quiet part of North Hampshire takes in big views and also a sense of history with the significance of the path. The idea for the full route was inspired by the well-documented 13th Century journeys of King John between Windsor Castle and Winchester, via the castle and hunting lodge he built near Odiham. Can you feel the history?

The full route takes in Windsor Great Park to Ascot, the Crown Estate south of Bracknell, the Blackwater Valley, the Basingstoke Canal, the Whitewater River and the River Itchen from Itchen Abbas to the Great Hall at The Castle, Winchester.

You will love the quiet nature of this walk, meeting only locals who are lucky to live in this slow-paced life of North Hampshire. Wildlife and birds are in abundance.

A lovely walk! We met not a soul (walkers, horses or bikers) the whole way! There was only one stile, at WP3, where there were also eye-height nettles and brambles. The path was obstructed/obscured in Barton Copse, just after a very churned-up section and just before it emerges into a field, so we made a small detour through the woods to rejoin the path where it enters the field.
