Start: The Renegade Brewery (RG18 0XT) Grid ref. SU 557 740

(S/E) Walk a few yds along the road leaving the brewery on your left and go through a gate where it becomes the drive to a private house, where it kinks left.

(1) In another 300 yds take an inconspicuous footpath sharply to the left which follows a field boundary with a hedge to your left. Continue past a gap on the same side of the hedge for a further 300 yds when the path enters the edge of a wood, shortly emerging through a gate into a field.

(2) Now bear right downhill and then up to a gate onto a road (quite busy) where you turn right.

(3) In some 600 yds, shortly after passing a right turn SP Stanford Dingley, turn left up a drive towards a half-timbered house. It curves to the right and in 100 yds turns left at a wood. After 40 yds with the wood on your right, go left again and shortly right on a waymarked path through Gravelpit Copse.

(4) Cross a firebreak to continue the path in trees for 150 yds, then go left on crossing a track and immediately right on a concrete road. Follow this out of woods, through an avenue of trees, curving right, then continue 200 yds towards a farm gate with a no-entry sign.

(5) Turn left on the drive to the right of Calvesleys Farm and its black barn. On the far side, ignore a track to the right, and continue 200 yds up to the corner of a wood.

(6) Turn left on crossing the track for 700 yds to Oaken Copse. Continue along the path on the left side of the wood for 500 yds.

(7) When it turns sharp right, turn left through a double gate into the church yard. Go to the right of the church and out to the road. Turn left and then first right down lane 200 yds to a T-junction.

(8) Go left and follow the lane back to the brewery.(S/E)

Useful Information

Start: The Renegade Brewery (RG18 0XT) Grid ref. SU 557 740

Driving to start: About twelve miles from Newbury, near the village of Yattendon. Take the B4009 from the Robin Hood roundabout, and the second branch to the right in Hermitage, SP Yattendon. In some four miles, take a fork right where the road bends left into Yattendon and follow round a bend to the right: the entrance to the brewery is on the left immediately before the de-restriction sign.

Rereshments: The Renegade Brewery is a modern state-of-the-art brewery with shop, tap room and kitchen. They provide good value meals in a modern idiom - salads, burgers, tacos, pizzas and the like, while the beer is a complete selection of the RB range in the best possible condition.
