Walk Report

The Egham Circuit, Saturday 3rd June 2017
13 walkers, 18 miles - leader Nigel Heys
The lucky 13 left Egham Station at 9 am heading up to the Air Force Memorial. The early start meant it was closed so we could not go up the tower to see the view of the Thames Valley. We then headed to the Savill Garden entrance to Windsor Great Park, then past the Obelisk to view the totem pole. We wandered through the remaining azaleas and rhododendrons to Virginia Water. Our morning break was by the lake before we headed to the Copper Horse and the view of Windsor Castle. The first part of the route to Windsor from there was off the Long Walk and we saw deer and a bird of prey and a crow duelling in mid-air. The suggested lunch stop in Windsor was Wetherspoon's Windelsora but some picnicked and used cafes. In the afternoon we headed along the Thames Path to Runnymede where most used the National Trust cafe before viewing the Magna Carta Memorial. It was then back to the Thames Path then into Egham reaching the station just as the London train pulled in.
