Thames Valley Circular Walk

201 km / 125 miles

Windsor M
Approximately 125 miles long, this circular long distance path in the countrside and towns around Reading has access points that are easily reached by train from London, Reading and adjoining stations. If time is limited it can be walked in sections at weekends and bank holidays with one or two overnight stops.

The walk passes through a variety of beautiful countryside including river valleys, chalk downland, coniferous forests, rare heath, and beech woods that are carpeted with bluebells in spring. The route takes in Windsor, Sandhurst, Winchfield, Dummer, Kingsclere, Woolhampton, Streatley, Stonor, Marlow, then back to Windsor.

The Thames Valley Circular Walk is not way-marked although it sometimes shares rights of way with other long distance paths. The walk mostly follows footpaths and bridle-ways, linked together by quiet lanes.

Full route description and sketch maps available from website below, run by supporters of Oxfam.
