Berkshire - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

Berkshire - A Dog Walker's Guidebook

by: Ruth Paley
Walking with your dog is a joy and you couldn't hope for a more enthusiastic walking companion. But once you leave your familiar routes there is always the worry of where you might suddenly come across a field of sheep or a busy road, as well as knowing which pubs and cafes would welcome you both.

Here is a collection of 20 tried and tested circular walks, varying in length from 2 to 6 miles, for dogs and their owners to explore Berkshire's beautiful countryside. These walks will lead you across magnificent Windsor Great Park; along the Thames Path in Reading and picturesque Remenham; through ancient water meadows near Cookham; and over the open rolling downland of Lambourn; discovering woods at Ufton; splashing in water at Dinton Pastures Country Park; and enjoying the Kennet and Avon canal in Hungerford and Newbury.

All the walks include details of dog factors such as livestock and stiles, recommended dog friendly pubs and cafes and contact details for the nearest vets. Other practical information includes distance, terrain, where to park, how to get there and nearest refreshments. The route finding instructions are in clear numbered paragraphs supported by a coloured sketch map with corresponding location numbers. There are also many colour photographs.
