Crazies Hill is one of those sorts of places you see signs to but never actually pass through. In fact it has a much-admired pub and is nice and quiet, which means it's a great place to park and start a walk. The landscape is rural, but with slopes and great long views, mostly over paddocks with horses and fields with sheep. About a third of the way along the route you reach the Thames for a short walk along the Thames Path, but not a part that is at all frequented. Then a meandering route takes you back up the slopes to the start, past some large farms and some fine houses.

This is a companion walk to 'Crazies Hill to the Thames and Back - East' (Walk 7099) in that you could walk the first half of this walk and then return along the second half of that one (see Additional Info' for details of this and other adjacent walks).

What a superb walk! Immaculately described as always by Chris, it starts pleasantly but fairly innocuously. By the end of WM5, however, it's pretty much all beautiful views along tranquil paths and lanes to the very end. Remarkably firm underfoot for the most part, even at this time of year.
