Froxfield, Cake Wood, Littlecote Estate
This 4.75 mile walk begins at the Pelican Inn car park in Froxfield at 11.00 am Park in the car park on the west side of the pub (the Marlborough side.
At the start and end of the walk we have to use a short section of pavement and cross the A4. There’s a steep flight of 21 steps up from the A4 and two stiles on route before we get to the edge Cake Wood. The middle section of the walk and a shorter section at the end are along a lane but there is a wide grass verge that can be walked on in places.
I hope you’ll agree that the splendid views as we return over the hills and back down to Froxfield are worth the inconvenience of the road sections
Please bring refreshments for yourself for a short refreshment break and allow 2.5 hours for the walk.
