WINTER PROGRAMME!

HUNGERFORD HARES SUMMER PROGRAMME 2019

General Points:
* Always check the Hares website and Outlook emails in case planned sessions have been changed;
* Tuesday sessions start at the Triangle Field promptly at 7.30pm with a warm-up, although AWAY RUNS start at the named pub;
* All sessions aim to cater for a range of needs within the group, so the group might be split to accommodate these, with appropriate support from our Run Leaders;
* AWAY RUNS usually finish with a drink and snack supper, with an option to book ahead for food;
* HILLS sessions are based either at different places on Hungerford Common or hilly routes around Hungerford to provide variety and build strength.
* ‘Sunday Service’ runs also might take place during the summer: check Outlook emails for details.
Contact Mandy (07780688912) or Geoff (07810787065) or Andy (07753339042) for further information.
 
ROUTE 1
LONG STANDEN/SHORT STANDEN - Left out of Triangle Field - right at triangle - follow road to 3rd footpath sign – turn right to follow path to cross the A338 - run down road opposite, past North Standen Manor - continue along private road – take path to the right into the fields - continue along track through various fields, past North Standen House until you reach Smitham Bridge Road.  At this point we can either turn right along the road back to Hungerford (shorter route), or cross over to the track opposite, and go down to follow path over the railway line and on to Freeman’s Marsh, then along the tow-path and back to the town (longer route), or left along the road to Froxfield, then right and back along the tow path (even longer route).

ROUTE 2
LITTLECOTE – Right out of Triangle Field - left at end of Priory Road and up the Salisbury Road - right into Church Way - follow road down to Church Street, then left and right under the railway bridge to the Church - left at the tow path - run to the 2nd lock (Cobbler’s Lock) - continue to wooden bridge with the steps and follow path up to the A4 - at road turn left – cross over the A4 and turn right up path on to wooded track  - follow field edge, then footpath straight across the arable field, then straight ahead to join the track down  through woods - when you meet the Littlecote road turn right - then at the junction turn right by the thatched house - run up the steep hill, through the woods at the top, across a grassy stretch, then past the front of Kiln Cottage and down to the A4 - cross the A4 – down the path nearly opposite to Freeman’s  Marsh - turn left across the narrow footbridge and along the stream to the Ash Tree (‘whirly’) pool.  When we get across the swing bridge to the Church we can either run up through the High Street or Church Way back to the Triangle Field, or for a slightly longer route turn left along the tow-path, past the town bridge, and cut up at Hungerford Common to run up to the Triangle Field.

ROUTE 3
ANVILLES – Left out of Triangle Field - right at triangle junction – then next left through the gate and across the field – turn right at the Inkpen road on to the concrete road into The Anvilles - at the bottom take the footpath right - then left over style, up through field to Little Common, through the garden by the donkey paddock and on to Saddlers. Turn left at the road, then after a few yards go left on the Inkpen road, then immediately right on to footpath through the trees. Emerging at the farm building and houses at a junction of paths, go straight across, through the (usually open) 5-bar gates, and nip left through the hedge after about 30m. Follow the track down between the paddocks, then through woodland, emerging on to some fields. Follow the footpath signs straight ahead, then sharp left through Balsdon Farm and Trinity Stud, and down to out the Kintbury Road. Turn left, then, after a few yards turn right into the field. Follow the path back to Hungerford Common and then the Triangle field. 

ROUTE 4
HIDDEN FARMS - Left out of Triangle Field, left at the triangle, then at the bottom turn left at T-Junction, follow the road to the Inkpen Gate. Go across Hungerford Common to Lower Denford via the railway and canal road bridge. Cross over A4 and up Dark Lane opposite. At the top, after passing Pond Cottage, and reaching the T-Junction, turn left then take a right footpath through to Great Hidden Farm then keep going across the farm paddocks and follow the long track along the wood edge until you come to a footpath on the left. Follow this to cross the A338 at Little Hidden Cottages, then take a left and almost immediately on your right is a drive that takes you to Little Hidden Farm. Follow the footpath that turns right well BEFORE the farmhouse. Follow this behind the first barn, turning left and through the farm, and out across the fields to New Hayward Farm. Follow the road left and down to the cross road.  Then slightly right to the footpath parallel to the road that leads behind the houses and through to the river. Then head back through the town to the Triangle Field.
