Monarch’s Way, Michelmersh and Braishfield

We are having a gorgeous couple of weeks weather wise and so I set out for a long country walk.  As usual, I easily found a nice sounding walk on the Walkingworld website – Walk 1879 – which was a circular walk and goes through the villages of Michelmersh and Braishfield. 

Farmer at workThe walk was just under 8 miles long and took me around 3 hours to complete.  There were a number of pubs on route, including the Bear and Ragged Staff at the start (or end) and the Newport Inn about half way round, so you could easily have made a day of it!  The walk also shares a small part of the route with Walk 1839 around Mottisfont and Kimbridge (see previous blog entry here) and so someone wanting a longer walk could probably combine the two.

CalfIt was a really lovely walk, mostly through farmland, with some stunning views of the countryside.  It had its share of hills but nothing too strenuous.  I met a lot of farmyard animals on the walk including some cute baby cows!

More photographs from the walk can be found on Flickr.
