Henley-on-Thames Circular
9 miles / 14.5 km

🟦 Booking open

We start at Henley-on-Thames station, the oldest settlement in Oxfordshire, to enjoy this pretty section of the South Thames Bank. As we walk, we’ll take a short diversion to look at Remenham’s St Nicholas Churchyard and exterior (and a glance inside if open.) Then we pass Fawley Temple, a neoclassical Folly on Temple Island which is now maintained by the Henley regatta. Then we cross the Thames and head northwest toward Hambledon, a well-preserved village. We take a circular walk through the Chilterns to enjoy a hit of woods and then return to follow the Thames North Bank back to Henley-on-Thames. Some people believe this is the most beautiful section of the Thames, but you will need to judge that for yourselves

    #Inspiral 5 : Maida Vale to Stockwell
    8 miles / 12.9 km

    🟦 Book on 29 May between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m

    After leaving the station, we soon cross the Grand Union Canal and walk along the rather grand roads to reach Kensington Gardens. We will take a moment to enjoy the Elfin Tree, a stump of a 900-year-old oak tree which is carved and painted to look as though elves, gnomes and small animals are living inside its bark. We continue south through Kensington until we cross the Thames on Albert Bridge and enjoy our lunches on benches alongside the river. After lunch we pass through Battersea Park where we see the sight of the old fun fair which tragically closed in 1974. We pass through an interesting housing estate before finishing this leg in Stockwell. We hope you are able to join u7s!

      Chipstead Circular
      7.5 miles / 12 km

      🟦 Book on 12 June between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

      This walk explores the edges of the North Downs close to the town of Chipstead in Surrey. As soon as we leave the station, we climb up onto the Downs to reach the edge of Banstead Wood from where there are good views to the south. We follow the edge of the wood before dropping down into the valley at Chipstead Bottom. A second climb takes us onto a wooded ridge. This leads south to Pigeonhouse Farm, where we head north west. We pass the Surrey Downs golf course before a short climb takes us to the former HQ of the Legal and General insurance company, now abandoned and awaiting re-development as a retirement village! We are now over halfway and have put most of the uphill stretches behind us, as our route crosses farmland to Park Downs, where we descend back to Chipstead
