This delightful route in the heart of the Chilterns combines footpaths and tracks through surprisingly remote woods and fields. It ends with a gentle walk beside the Hamble Brook as it flows towards the River Thames. The walk start is around three miles from Henley-on-Thames.
There's a good pub - The Frog - a little over halfway round at Skirmett.
Additionally, there is also the option of the Stag and Huntsman pub in Hambledon (closed for renovation in January 2012) as well as a well stocked shop in the village.
As you can tell from the walk number this walk has the distinction of being the very first Walkingworld walk. We used it to check that the format worked. The pictures do have a very 1999 grainy look having been taken on one of the earliest digital cameras. But as far as we know nothing significant has changed and the walk has been checked recently by Andrew Long in April 2011. (Thank you, Andrew!)
