Berkshire Walk – May 2018

Head to East Berkshire and blow the cobwebs away on a fairly long, but mostly level walk through Windsor Great Park. Once part of a vast Norman hunting forest, the park is a great place for a walk with its wonderful mix of ancient oak trees and wildlife, including a large herd of red deer.

Hampshire Walk – May 2018

This month’s walk starts out from Oakley to the west of Basingstoke. The village, which consists of East Oakley and Church Oakley – the latter being close to the church, was mentioned in the Domesday Book, though its history goes back much further than that as there are a number of ancient burial mounds, or tumuli, nearby.
