New Members Walk: Windsor (Central) to Cookham via Thames Path – 11 (flat) miles, April 1st

New members walks are a great way for existing, prospective and new members to find out more about CLOG.

This walk heads away from Windsor (Central) (NOT Windsor & Eton Riverside) and it's dominating Castle out to open fields alongside the Thames. The walk follows the riverside path.

After about 6 miles of open countryside the Thames comes into Bray and on into Maidenhead, with its many large houses and its famous railway bridge.

 This bridge is thought to be the one painted by JWM Turner in his painting ‘Rain, Steam, Speed’.  We’ll try out its ‘singing arch’ before taking lunch either by the river or at Blue River Café (Main courses from £10 to £15 e.g. Roast £10.95 with lighter meal options).   Those wanting a shorter walk can depart for Maidenhead Station.

River Scene

 Beyond Maidenhead, cliffs line the North Bank of the river as the Thames Path heads briefly away from the river into the attractive village of Cookham where we’ll take Tea.

Trains:  Take the 09:50 from London Paddington to Slough (arrives 10:06 at platform 5) and change for the 10:12 (departs platform 1) to Windsor (Central) arrives 10:18.  We’ll be returning from Cookham trains at XX:21 past the hour.
