Stroll around Sulhamstead

This delightful 4 1/2 mile walk has plenty of waterside walking on offer.  We start by going along the canal and then head off to Sulhampstead to walk through farmland with views of the Police Training College.  We then return via the Hose Hill Nature reserve alongside the lakes.  This walk is pretty flat going all the way.

PARKING

As we will have rather a lot of cars on Sunday could I please ask those that are NOT dining to find parking close to the pub but not in their car park.  There is verge parking near the pub and also off road parking near the roundabout.  THANK YOU

DIRECTIONS

From Reading and M4 Junction 12 - Head towards Theale along the A4. Go across the first roundabout after the M4 Junction and take the next slip road off the dual carriageway towards Theale Station. Follow and pass the signs for Theale Station towards Sheffield Bottom until you come to 3rd roundabout. Take a left here and immediately you will see the Pub.

From Newbury/Aldermaston A4 - Go along the A4 towards Theale and the M4. Go along the A4 dual carriageway from the roundabout (the A340 turnoff) and U turn back along the dual carriageway at the next roundabout. Take the next slip road off the dual carriageway towards Theale Station. Follow and pass the signs for Theale Station towards Sheffield Bottom until you come to 3rd roundabout. Take a left here and immediately you will see the Pub.

    It may have been very wet today and flooding affected where we could walk, but it was still enjoyable. Thanks for organing Jackie.

    Maybe I should rename this walk to "Slosh and Squelch around Sulhamstead". The weather was dreadful but still 9 of us hardy souls turned out to get wind swept and wet. We did not manage to do the walk as planned due to flooding (thanks for testing the ground Chris) and the slight issue of lots and lots of rain and footpaths being closed but nevertheless we managed just over 4 miles. Thank you all for coming out and good to meet Sally on her first event with the group.

    I may have to cancel if the weather is as forecast. Still not 100% after catching a virus - so don't want to push my luck. Will confirm tomorrow.

    I would love to be there, but i've come down with a bug, was hoping to be better by now, but am sorry to say that i'm going to have to cry off. Fingers crossed for the weather for you.

    For all you fair weather walkers the forecast is for light rain first thing but getting heavier as the morning progresses. Just thought I would warn you but of course the forecast has been known to be wrong ......

      Hmm rather be there than here. Brussels is rather lonely. Only consolation is nice food.

      Hi Jacky, I will check out the weather in the morning and let you know. If it's pouring down I will probably give it a miss.
