Idlecombe Wood Walk

Reading Rotary

A group of seventeen club members and their partners enjoyed a most pleasant walk in The Chilterns on Wednesday 20 October 2021.  

The walk started with a short section along Holloway Lane between The Bull and Butcher Public House and Ashfield Barn Road in Turville, followed and by another section which went slightly uphill through an open field. The team spirit was great and all tackled the steepest section of the route before reaching the heart of Idlecombe Wood.   

We had some rain whilst walking along the path leading through the Wood itself, which was the main part of the route: very pleasant, varied and protected.  We were chatting a lot amongst ourselves and the event became most enjoyable during the lunch in The Barn, a very special and unique place in Turville Heath.  After lunch we had an easy continuous downhill section of the 6km walk, largely through fields and in the sunshine.
