Length: 6 mi • Est. 3 h 2 m
A circular walk starting from Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire. The walk follows a long stretch of the Thames Path north up to Hambleden Lock, before turning away from the river to return via woodland and grass meadows. The walk is mainly flat with just a couple of short ascents and it follows a mixture of tarmac, stone and firm mud tracks, some of which may be slippery after wet weather. There are 5 stiles and a few kissing gates, but all of the stiles have open fencing alongside making them easy for most dogs to negotiate. Note that access to the walk will not be possible during Henley Regatta. Approximate time 2.5 to 3 hours. Show more

This circular walk combines historic villages and beech woods on the lower slopes of the Chilterns with a stretch of the Thames Path between Sonning and Henley in Oxfordshire. The Thames Path section is a particular delight as some of it can be surprisingly quiet and it takes you through meadows and copses rich with wildlife. Sections of this walk will be muddy after wet weather, and parts of the Thames section can flood. You will need to negotiate a few gates and kissing gates, some steps and one stile. The walk is suitable for dogs (although remember the one stile) but not buggies. There are a couple of short sections along quiet roads and a few road crossings that need care. This walk is adapted from a walk originally published in Raymond Hugh's Adventurous Walks in the South Chilterns. These lovely books are sadly out of print, but it is worth buying them if you ever see one for sale second-hand because of the unique combination of his sense of humour, local history, interesting path choices, hand-drawn maps and his clear love of (some of) the local pubs. In the introduction to Raymond Hugh's original walk he recommends that this walk is done several times in different seasons and weather conditions. Although this walk starts on the edge of Henley, the only opportunities to get food and drink on the route are at The Flowing Spring as you approach Sonning and at The Baskerville or the village store in Lower Shiplake towards the end of the walk.Show more

A beautiful route around the Chilterns avoiding (at all costs) any cow fields or horses! Takes you through the town of Frieth and Skirmett, where The Frog is a perfect stop off for a refreshment. Some sections of tarmac to avoid the animals, but the traffic is very quiet. Some of the lanes provide views across the valley. The route includes two decent hills to get you going, but they are well worth the climb.Show more
