This is a lovely walk starting at a car park on the North Wessex Downs before dropping down to the valley and the Kennett and Avon Canal at Kintbury. At Kintbury we will have lunch before returning, walking through a mixture of open woodland, country lanes and small villages .
The walk is a Picnic Walk.The Pubs on route have either closed or have limited opening hours, therefore we will have to take a picnic. There are a small number of shops including a bakery in Kintbury which offer pastries but the opening hours again are varied.
Start time 10:30

A circular walk through Meonstoke up to Corhampton Golf Club, returning to Exton. Delightful views, but plenty of shady sections if it is hot.

Woodfidley - "something and nothing" or "a light drizzly rain". It was also the name of a folk dance team but, in this case, a rail crossing in the New Forest. This walk will take in woodland and heath with a short section 'off piste'.
