The Henley Hoppit! (2701)

Friday 29 Oct ~ 11:00 AM

Henley Walkers Are Welcome are delighted to bring you the ‘Henley Hoppit!’  This 10 mile walk from the historic riverside market town of Henley takes us on journey through the rolling southern Chilterns to discover the Loddon Brewery at Dunsden Green Farm.  The brewery has a welcoming taproom, perfect for some mid-walk refreshment – perhaps a pint of Hoppit!  Our path leads us through fields and woods, rich in their autumn colours, and there are plenty of curiosities to discover along the way, from a Roman temple to an old listening station, and mushrooms!  The brewery is mid-way on our walk and there is an option to bus back to Henley from Dunsden or Binfield Heath.
