This short trail starts from Northcroft leisure centure in Newbury and follows part of the route of the town’s Speen Moor Walk. Throughout the walk are a number of information boards proving historical information about the area.

The flat walk, stars at the leisure centre and passes Goldwell Park and then heads westwards along the ancient Lambourn Valley Way footpath.  It goes under the an old railway viaduct and passes along side some flooded fields before turning south across a large bridge and then follows the course of the River Kennet and it’s tributaries. The river was very deep and flowing very fast along here, a large area of woodland was completely flooded taking on the appearance of an amazon rainforest.

At Guyer’s lock the trail crosses an old bridge over the Kennett and Avon calm Canal and then turns East heading back towards Newbury along the quiet canal towpath passing the rear of the gardens of the houses that back on to it. At the Monkey Bridge we crossed back over the canal and arrived back at the leisure centre.  This a short but interesting little series which I very much enjoyed.
