This lovely walk of just over 5 miles leaves Hermitage to visit the hamlet of Oare with it's pretty church and then heads back into Hermitage passing the cottage where D.H.Lawrence lived during WW1. The walk then leaves the village to cross farmland and woodland and includes the hill fort known as Grimsbury Castle before heading back into the village. This is a repeat of a walk we did back in September 2013. THERE WILL BE A £1 FEE PER PERSON FOR THIS WALK
