Goring - Streatley - The Holies - Lardon Chase - Goring

The inland resort of Goring, Thames riverside and National Trust chalk downland reserves are explored on this bracing walk, which starts in Oxfordshire but is set mainly in Berkshire. A wealth of wildflowers is to be found in the reserves, including the gorgeous clustered bellflower. The walk includes two steep climbs, one particularly so, though it is ameliorated by steps and seats.

This was a glorious walk with stunning views. Point 9 was disappointing because the trees have grown high enough to lose the view of the river. However, although the directions are a little confusing at places due to plantation growth etc, trust what is written down and you will surely find your way. Well worth the walk and once completed, its a sure bet to do it again.

We do lots of family walks from Walking World and have never had a problem with directions before and although the beginning was clear we got completely lost and rechristened the walk Groundhog Walk as we found ourselves back in the same place again and again and eventually gave up - threw the map away and used common sense instead - lovely views beautiful part of the world but these directions need some serious work.

18/4/10 Tricia Daw My husband and I did this walk on our first real hot day of the year. It was gloriously sunny and so tho' there are some steep climbs the views are really worth the effort. We found the route very easy to follow provided we occasionally checked it against an OS map. Thank you

Great walk with some lovely views. Although one climb was steep, it wasn't too bad and the views made it worth while. When I walked this in September 05, the footpath sign and stile mentioned in 6 and 7 were not visable. The footpath is located between two properties on the left, if you keep your eyes peeled, you'll see the stepped footpath rising steeply just back from the road. If you get as far as the pub, you've missed the path. The remains of a broken stile was visable when I got to the foot of the path.

Great Views on this walk. Some updates are needed: Car park is now £1.70 Step 6 Footpath sign post is missing. Look out for "Greenhill Villa" and take the path to the right of the house. Step 9. After visiting the view point, ensure that you pass back through the gate before following the wire fence downhill or you will encounter a new electric fence at the bottom of the valley. You won't join the metalled track until you reach the bottom of the valley.
