|Charsfield Short Walk|
|Author: blackcoffee, Published: 05 Jul 2013||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 4 mile walk around the pretty village of Charsfield which initially climbs to give good views over the village and then travels along quiet country lanes and wide footpaths crossing orchards and arable land. The classic book 'Akenfield: Portrait of an English Village' by Ronald Blythe is based upon the village of Charsfield. The Three Horseshoes public house makes a good refreshment stop after the walk. |
There are no stiles or gates to negotiate and whilst the lanes carry little traffic, care should be taken along these sections. Approximate time 2 hours.
Charsfield is 3 miles west of Wickham Market just off the B1078. Cars can be parked by the church or by the village hall. Approximate post code IP13 7PY.
|Start to Baptist Chapel|
Start point: 52.1618 lat, 1.2942 long
The walk starts at the Saint Peter's Church. Walk down the road and take the first left onto The Street. Go straight ahead passing the village hall and the Three Horseshoes pub. On reaching the Baptist chapel take the road on the left to walk up Chapel Lane.
|Baptist Chapel to Charsfield Hall|
Start point: 52.1588 lat, 1.3006 long
Climb the hill passing the Alan Pedrift Memorial Field on your left (another area for parking).
|Charsfield Hall to Wide track|
Start point: 52.1615 lat, 1.2696 long
Turn left along the road passing on your right Number One Hall Cottages and further on Park Farm.
|Wide track to End|
Start point: 52.158 lat, 1.2839 long
Follow this wide grassy track up the slope between the fields. At a junction of tracks take the surfaced track which bends to the right. You will now see Charsfield Church in the distance. Keep on this track which eventually turns to grass and narrows. Go straight ahead to pass the primary school playground on your right and join the road opposite the church.

We parked in the Three Horseshoes car park with the permission of the landlord at 11am. The walk was very pleasant and interesting with the village and orchards and there was a nice friendly pub at the end for lunch. PS the pub closes st 2pm.

It took us one hour and I recon the route is about three miles. Still, a pleasant enough walk.

Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
