Post code is some distance from the parking but parking is obvious when you come to it. This is a lovely varied walk with lots of interesting features. Some of it is a bit exposed and the views are one of the main attractions, so not ideal on a rainy, misty day. If you are thinking you can buy something on Lower Lambourn High Street think again it is just pretty thatched cottages! Race horses sadly missing when we walked.
