Walk Route Description

This leisurely walk (ideal for working off Sunday lunch) has the advantages of starting and finishing at a pub and has no hills to climb! It passes through the Dogmersfield estate and past the picturesque Tundry Pond.
The starting point is the public car park opposite the Barleymow Inn, just a few yards along Sprat's Hatch Lane, grid reference SU777538. Walk up to the Basingstoke Canal from the car park and turn right, under Sprat's Hatch Lane and following the towpath under Stacey's Bridge and Basely's Bridge all the way to the Sprat's Hatch Bridge. Cross over the bridge and follow the footpath past Sprat's Hatch Farm.
Shortly after the path turns sharp left at the farm, look out for a footpath on the right adjacent to the big iron gates to the estate. Follow this path, fenced at either side with pigs, cows and assorted farm animals to see until it joins the main drive. Shortly afterwards a metal gate to the left leads to Tundry Pond. Walk along the bank of this lovely lake all the way to the woods at the far end. Here turn right and follow the path over the canal bridge. Once across the bridge, take the towpath on the left back to the start point.
