Wasing Church and Hyde End

The almshouse gateway, Brimpton

The walk begins by the excellent Pineapple pub on the B3051 at Brimpton Common - the ideal place for a nice pub lunch afterwards. You head north through Wasing Wood, cross the mighty Enborne and reach the village of Brimpton which has a nice church and the splendid gateway to the Victorian St Peter's almshouses. You then head south via Hyde End to Ashford Hill and then return to Brimpton Common. An easy 6 1/2 miles.
