The Bell Boxford (3.6m)

Pub-website RG20 8DD SU 424713
About five miles from Newbury on the Lambourn valley road. Go N from the Waitrose roundabout, and turn L at the mini roundabout then keep SO until you arrive.
A rather upmarket pub (Les Routiers) that will provide decent bar snacks as well as expensive meals. Good draught beers.

Leave the pub towards Newbury, turn L and follow the road over the River Lambourn, and bear to the R by the church. Follow the road for a further 600yds, first uphill, then down, and then take a farm track on the R. Follow this for a mile until you come to a R turn into a wood by Copse Barn. Take this emerging from the wood and joining a track in about 300yds. Turn R here onto the Lambourn Valley Way, which follows that river back to Boxford. Turn L over the bridge in Boxford to return to the pub.
