Leisurely 7.5 miles / 12.1 km
This lovely walk visits the less frequented countryside to the east of Ilmington.
From the village we begin with a longish climb up towards the Foxcote estate and then descend, with great views, on a lovely section through woods, across fields and then on quiet country lanes, first to Darlingscott and and then on to Blackwell, where we will stop for a snack break. From Blackwell we continue, initially on tarmac, then across fields and over a final small hill back into Ilmington
Bring refreshments for a snack stop.

This is a circular walk
Apart from the initial, fairly steep climb, the route is pretty flat and easy. Quite a lot is on tarmac but these are quiet country lanes with little traffic. Just a few stiles but nothing difficult. Likely to be cattle in a couple of fields.
Suitable for well-behaved dogs on leads.
For those interested, Illmington has a couple of good pubs and an excellent community cafe.
