Burridge Heath, Gully Copse. 5.5 miles
We will leave the village hall for this circular walk and go along Galley Lane to Jockey Green. Then uphill past the remains of the kiln at Mirldown and on towards Burridge Heath. We will then turn in the direction of Shalbourne and after a short tarmac stretch head across a lovely wide open meadow in the valley, cross a small wooden bridge and continue through trees. Our way back is through similar terrain; woodland, fields, tree lined tracks and another small bridge to cross until we reach the hard surface of the bridleway at Burridge Heath from where it is downhill to Little Bedwyn and home by the canal.
No stiles, just the two narrow wooden bridges. Please bring a snack for a short stop on route. Dogs on leads please – sheep in the vicinity.
