Walk Report

Maidenhead Loop, Saturday 29th August 2015
16 walkers, 20 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
Despite the prognostications of rail disturbances, there was a normal service to Maidenhead on the day and 16 of us had a very enjoyable 20-mile walk. First, along the Thames path passing many billionaire residences and then into the hills with a break at Hedsor old church and a view of Lord Boston's Victorian folly.
A loop along the Beeches way to Littlemore common and descent to Woburn common for picnic lunch where we had a long-range view of a cricket match on one side and a wedding on the other. The weather had been sunny in the morning but became overcast and sultry with a few drops of rain later but it held off until the end. The leader kindly reduced some of the hilly climbs and the return was via Cock Marsh and the Winter Hill ridge before crossing to Cookham Dean and return to Maidenhead using the very pleasant Green Way.
