The Fox Hermitage (4.0m)

Website-on-pub RG18 9RB SU 509732
About six miles from Newbury on the B4009 Streatley road , or you can go to the Chieveley interchange, take the Chieveley slip road and turn R for Hermitage, where turn L on the B4009 for a mile..
Now a very convivial pub with good beer, good snacks and meals (no sandwiches) and fine waitresses.

Take the Yattendon road for a few yards, then a FP R on the line of the old railway then shortly L onto another FP through the woods. In about 400yds, turn L onto a larger track and follow this through the woods for about 400yds more, then R for another 400yds to emerge onto a NS track. Follow this to cross a metalled lane, and at the second metalled road go R then L down a track that bears L then goes round a sharp R hand corner. 600yds later when the track turns sharp L, leave it for a field path on the R. As this enters a wood in 300yds, turn R and follow the track forward for a mile till it comes out on a metalled lane by Grimsbury Castle. Turn R to a T junction where take the path down through woods for about 500yds, until you recognise (with luck) the path from the pub, which is now about 500yds away.
