What you’ll find there…
One of the nicest surprises during the research for “Greenspace on your doorstep” was our first visit to Piglittle Field. We visited on a blue sky, snowy day in January and it was lovely, with far reaching views of the surrounding countryside. On a clear day, you can see all the way to the Chiltern Hills.
The footpath extends beyond the area shown on the noticeboard, so it’s even better than it looks. Neighbouring Keephatch Meadows has a circular, surfaced footpath and links very nicely with Piglittle Field to create a 3km route.
There are also options to build a visit to Piglittle Field into a longer walk from nearby Pope’s Meadow. It’s possible to walk from Peacock Meadows, but the footpath is not very pleasant in places, so we’d recommend the former option at the moment. You can also pickup the Wokingham Way here or the Rambler’s Route at Pope’s Meadow.
N.B. The bins we found were in the new bit, on the surfaced path section, not the area immediately adjacent to the housing development.
