We thought it would be a great idea to map out a walk that stretches the entire way across Berkshire, and call it The Berkshire Way.

It means you can take a walk across any part of the county, and rest assured you'll cross some fantastic countryside.

We give you...

* A detailed description of the walk - we have walked all 14 routes and can tell you about the terrain, distance and things to look out for.

* Handy maps in the left hand box of every page to help you on your way. When you open the maps, it's best to set the size to 'Fit in window'.

* Facts about the location in which you are walking in the left hand box.

* Useful weblinks to tell you more about the area.

The walks are not circular, as the idea was to create a route going across the county. This means you may need to be ultra-organised and park a car at the start and a car at the finish.
