The Berkshire Walkers ( https://www.berkshirewalkers.co.uk/ ) is a walking and social group aimed at people in their 20's and 30's and is part of The Ramblers. We are based in Berkshire, mainly around Reading, Newbury and Slough, and provide walks at a variety of lengths on weekends and summer evenings. We also have regular socials such as pub meets, meals out, ten-pin bowling and trips to musuems and places of interest. All are welcome to join the Berkshire Walkers for a walk, or one of our social events, whether you are already a keen walker, or just starting down the path.
There is no charge to come on our walks, and you are welcome to come on up to 3 walks to 'try' us out. If you decide you want to continue walking with us, all we ask is that you join The Ramblers ( https://www.ramblers.org.uk/become-a-member.aspx ), which currently costs £35.85 per year. Joining The Ramblers brings all the benefits of being part of the UK's largest walking organisation, with discounts available in many walking shops (eg 15% at Cotswold Outdoor). You will also receive a magazine 4 times a year, about walking in the UK and things that affect your rights to walk through our amazing and varied countryside. Your membership fees also contribute to The Ramblers' efforts to promote walking as a healthy pastime, to campaign for access and to fight for maintained access to our rights of way.
Not all our members are on Meetup, so there will be more people on walks than are shown on Meetup. For a general idea, we typically get 10-20 people on our walks.
Distance: 7.5 miles
Walk Leader: Dan
This walk will explore the open fields in the heart of West Berkshire.
Meet at the High Street in Chieveley for a 11am start having parked up considerately in the village. The walk takes us in a northerly direction to Stanmore and then taking a narrow route back we return via Beedon Common over mainly flat land. The nature of the land around here will hopefully mean it won’t be too muddy. However please be prepared especially if we receive significant rainfall in days leading up to walk.
Please bring picnic lunch, something to drink and allow for an optional pub stop at end of walk. Hope to see as many newbies, regulars and irregulars as possible!
