10:30am Hungerford Town Walk
Meeting point - Outside Hungerford Town Hall, High St, Hungerford RG17 0NF
Lesley Dunlop will lead this walk around the centre of Hungerford. We will look at some of the building stones as well as the church and surrounds. It will last approximately 2 hours. Whilst at first glance the Town Centre is mainly brick there are many other building materials features and the church is built from Bath Stone, brought by canal shortly after the canal opened. There is some on street (paying) parking nearby and information on other car parks can be found at https://en.parkopedia.co.uk/parking/hungerford/
10:30am Watership Down and Ladle Hill
Meeting point - Roadside parking SU 49164 56591, What3Words unstated.rhino.videos
This walk of 3 miles led by Roger York and Lesley Dunlop gives an opportunity to view the landscape of Berkshire and Hampshire and discuss the underlying bedrock along with the structural and geomorphological events which have shaped this. The walk is a linear walk along the escarpment beginning with heading east from the parking area to a viewpoint on Watership Down before returning westwards to Ladle Hill. Ladle Hill is an unfinished Iron Age hillfort which offers extensive views along the escarpment and across the Kennet and Enbourne valleys. There are several other archaeological features that can be seen nearby. The walk is all on good footpaths, mostly level or gentle slopes and there are no stiles. It may be cold, wet and windy as it is exposed so wrap up warm but it will definitely blow away the cobwebs!
