Brakspear Pub Trails

What could be better than a country walk to get the blood pumping and some fresh air in your lungs followed by a well-deserved drink and a bite to eat in the pub? Well how about three walks from that pub so you can decide how far you want to walk?

Download our maps below, or pop into the pub before your walk to pick up a copy (we ask for a 50p donation to Marie Curie if you do pick up a copy from the pub, they're Brakspear's nominated charity for 2017). Don't forget to book a table if you want a bite to eat at the end of your walk too. More pub walks are being added over the summer and autumn of 2017 too.

These walks have been put together by TOE2 volunteers, so if you spot something that might make life easier for future walkers, please get in touch by emailing
