Moderate 13.7 miles / 22.1 km
This is a long and fast walk like the monthly ones run recently. The distance is 13.7 miles and we will be looking to maintain an average speed of greater than 3mph excluding the stops.
The walk begins from the car park opposite Hungerford railway station, off Station Road, near to the Railway Tavern PH; RG17 0EA / SU 340684. The cost of parking in Hungerford by the station has been increased to £4.00 or £4.20 depending on which car park is used, and therefore can walkers be prepared to have sufficient change to cover this for the day. From there we will go past the church onto the canal tow path, crossing the canal and going north and west up towards Littlecote House. We then turn south west down towards Froxfield, stopping at the Pelican PH for lunch, a distance of about 7.5 miles. After lunch we will go south down through Stype Wood and via Bagshot and Standen Farm to return back to Hungerford. 13.7 miles
