A circular walk from Goring and Streatley rail station in Oxfordshire. The walk heads out along a quiet lane before cutting through Hartslock Nature Reserve and then returning along a beautiful stretch of the Thames Path. There’s plenty of wildlife along the way and this stretch of the river is also likely to be busy with leisure boats. The walk is flat except for one steep climb and descent across the nature reserve. There are no stiles but several gates and kissing gates. The Thames Path passes through one long field which will probably be holding cattle so take care here with dogs. The Thames Path can get muddy in winter/after wet weather so wear suitable footwear at these times. There are toilets available at the station. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

I only had time for the riverside portion , but what a lovely walk. Really pretty and places for the doggies to have a paddle about halfway. Loved it.

Rather than going to the carpark at the station, use the one in town, it's cheaper and you'll walk past it anyway so it makes no difference to the walk.
