Our Short Walk.....

took us through the countryside of Berkshire.

There were only two of us, Liz the leader wanted to do a reckie, for next weeks walk so I went along with her.

We started our walk at South Fawley , and then towards Whatcombe, where we came across an amazing house with beautiful gardens and very well designed trees. As we made our way round the side of the house and up the hill we were able to see Whatcombe Racing Stables which is one of the largest and oldest training centres in the UK and is set in 450 acres, boasting 5 sets of gallops ( three grass and two all weather surfaces ), an Equine pool and Indoor School...we continued through the fields, with delightful views, passing Pounds Farm, Cranes Farm and Old Warren...and back round to South Fawley.
