Bucklebury is famously the home of the Middletons, with several helicopters (and reporters) buzzing about it a few years ago. In reality it's a pleasant, small village and common on the line of hills between the Kennet and Pang valleys.  Our walk will take us through the village towards Frilsham, and on to the charmingly-named Standford Dingley.  After crossing the mighty Pang (which at this time of year has a chance of containing water), we'll head up onto Bucklebury common.

Note that this route is likely to contain many miles of mud in winter, so please come prepared! Our walk takes us along field-boundary and woodland paths with very little tarmac.

 

Is it dog friendly?  Dogs are welcome but please note and abide by the Countryside Code (https://tinyurl.com/rlqvp3h) and be prepared for a couple of stiles / hills on the walk. Please also remember not everyone loves dogs as much as you do so please be mindful of other members.
