The Dundas Arms, Kintbury (3.3m)

Pub-website RG17 9UT SU 387671
About five miles from Newbury near the station level crossing and canal bridge.
No longer under the ownership of Mr Dalziel Piper, the Dundas is now more of a pub than a restaurant, though the pub meals are quite good, and sandwiches are available at lunchtimes. A good selection of draught beers is available.

From The Dundas, take the canal towpath towards Hungerford for 700yds, crossing the canal by the second bridge. On joining the road, go L then R at the top of the hill for Inglewood. In 400yds, turn L on the FP before Kintbury Farm, and follow this through several wooden and metal gates till you reach the metalled lane from Kintbury to St Cassians. Go R for a few yards, then sharp left into the field, and keep L to a metal gate into a drive near some farm buildings. Turn R along the grassy drive, and go forward past metal gates (FP to Titcombe Manor) then follow the track to it's end at another metal gate. Bear L on the FP uphill then down to cross a stream and up again to join a farm lane at a corner. Go L on this, and turn L in 200yds to go downhill, ignoring two FP signs to the R, towards Titcomb Manor. In front of this, take a FP through a squeeze stile to the R. This drops through fields, crosses a stream, and eventually passes between larchlap garden fences before meeting the High Street in Kintbury near The Blue Ball (another possible starting point, though opening hours are limited). Go R then L for the church, past which is a FP that goes through a turnstile towards the pub.
