Sat Nav Reference SP11 0DS

Where we can eat/drink Jack Russel pub Faccombe
Distance of walk  5.5miles ( approx. 3 hours)
Where we will walk Circular walk from Faccombe via Ashmansworth ( 770feet)  over Pilot Hill (937 feet) using Brenda Parker Way and WayfaresWay .
Terrain Well maintained tracks and footpaths on an ancient ridgeway, short sections on very quiet single-track road. Some inclines and descents. Not overly muddy when we walked it but it appears to be coming into the “rainy season “again so poles may be a useful addition. Fairly easy and varied trip with some good all-round views and lots of wildlife. If clear superb views across Berkshire

Other notes Provisional booking for 6 at the Jack Russel pub in Faccombe made for 2pm – see pub web site for menu. Food is served till 2.30 pm if we are late. The pub has recently been reopened at a cost of 3m so you know what to expect.
. This is slight further out than our normal 30 min radius but it is lovely rural landscape in the heart of the North Hampshire Downs with a bit of altitude thrown in for those of you like a hill!
