Walk 10

Middle Baughurst Walk

Approximate time: 1.5 hours.  Distance: 3.5 miles

Start map reference: What3words: fortified.saints.conforms Map Ref: 583613

Leave Baughurst Road at Chapel Lane and walk along the track to Curtis Farm, bear left to nearby five-bar gate.  Through the gate to kissing gate leading into field with extensive views to the Hannington mast.  Keep to the right of the field and at an opening in the hedge go down to the planks over the stream and up the bank on the other side.  In the field turn right and keep with the hedge on the right up to a five-bar gate at Violet Lane (now with logs in front!).  In the lane turn right, then cross over Wolverton Road into Inhurst Lane.  After a few metres enter a field on the left and follow the path with the hedge on the left.  At the end of the hedge, the path turns right across the open field to the woodland opposite.

Enter the wood and follow the path on the left for about 100m and then turn left.  Keep straight ahead through woodland until the path emerges again into the field.  The path then passes through the field with the wood (now mainly consisting of pine trees) at the right and a cinder track for racehorses on the left towards the two houses at the far end.  Pass through the kissing gate at the end of the track and turn left to pass between the houses, down the track to Wolverton Road.

Cross the road, turn right and on the left before the bridge at Axmansford find the bridleway (which can be very muddy).

Keep to the left on the bridleway, uphill to pass between paddocks and woodland.  After approx 800m the bridleway joins another track and turns sharp left.  Proceed past houses on either side to join Violet Lane.

Cross Violet Lane and turn right and on the left a gate leads to a path through paddocks (again very muddy!) which is fenced on either side up to Westview Farm.  The path will take you over planks (mind the electric fence which is overgrown), through the kissing gate (wobbly gate and fence) and keep the hedge on your right, horses on your left – the path curves left then right.

Leave the farmhouse on the right and horses to your left, go slightly uphill to the gate.  Turn immediately left and take the fenced path between the paddocks, through another kissing gate and then turn left to join Chapel Lane.  Turn right to Baughurst Road.
