Holyport is a very small village, south of Maidenhead and the M4. The area is mostly farmland for cattle, sheep and horses. By and large this particular route is on quiet footpaths, with very little need to use roads or pavements, although a few need to be crossed. The ground is London Clay, which means it can be very muddy after rain. There are unfortunately quite a few stiles and gates on the route, because of the farmland through which we pass.

There are two good pubs in Holyport: The George on the main road and The Belgian Arms, tucked away up a sidestreet.

A map showing how all four Holyport walks are interlinked is available under 'Related Downloads', should you wish to combine parts of more than one walk.

A pleasant walk, with clear and easy to follow directions. Mostly through unremarkable flat farmland with the odd nice vista. Completed in 1hr 45 mins at a relaxed pace. Rather too much plane noise for it to feel particularly tranquil but that's hardly surprising so near to Windsor.
