This pleasant country walk combines a brief glimpse of the Thames with broadleaved woods and open fields. It starts and finishes in Medmenham, a small village close to the attractive town of Marlow. Marlow itself is worth a visit, with appealing shops, pubs, restaurants and a famous bridge over the river.

Also worth visiting to the west of Medmenham is Henley-on-Thames, famous for its regatta held in July each year.

To avoid bulls and aggressive cows with huge horns we turned left at waypoint 24 onto the lane to Brokmear END farm take the first right downhill to the church at waypoint 1. The lane is quiet. Beware the woods on a windy day, we walked on a non windy day and if we hadnt stopped to check the map we would have been seriously wounded or worse as a huge bough fell suddenly from a tree 20 ft away from where we stood right across the path. Dog walkers please take your pooh bags home only litter we saw.

Very enjoyable walk, although I think it's closer to 6.5 miles, rather that the 4.9 stated in the directions. Got a little lost at step 23. I climbed up through the woods after crossing the track. At the top there seemed to be an option of going left or right. I initially went left and then had to double back. You need to turn right at the top and continue for a short time through the wood to reach the small lane. Other than that minor distraction, it was a nice day out in the country.
