APOLOGIES, THIS WALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS.

Led by Dick Mayon-White, an experienced walk leader, conservationist and author on walks by the Thames and over rivers, this interesting circular walk starts from the centre of Henley. The journey will see you go past the former Brakespear brewery and the almshouse by St Mary’s Church to Henley Bridge where you join the Thames Path. Along the Thames Path you will admire the grand houses and other places on the banks of the Thames until you reach Hambleden lock (3 miles). From the lock, you will go inland to Aston and over the hill behind Remenham, where you get a great view of the Chilterns and Thames Valley. The walk ends when you get back to Henley Bridge, completing a circular walk of 6 miles.
