Henley, Assendon and Stonor

  • Feb 3, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Walk length 12 miles (19 km) approx.

This spectacular and substantial walk follows ridge paths and woodland tracks in a circular route from the riverside town of Henley-on-Thames.



Walk Description:


A great deal of scenery is covered on this walk from the river at Henley to the great views over the Thames valley on the ridges walking up towards Stonor through Lower and Middle Assendon. The final leg of the walk takes in more great scenery and woodland tracks with some curiosities such as the ruined Church of St James (abandoned in 1875), before returning back to Henley.





Lunch & Finish

Please bring a packed lunch and water for the walk. Our walks usually finish at about 4.15pm and include a 30 min lunch stop, however the time may be earlier or later than this depending on the weather and pace (we have a relaxed pace which includes sightseeing and photography).

Meeting and Transport: Meet at 10.00am for the walk to start at 10.15am at the Council Car Park, Greys Road, Henley, RG9 2AA.

Car: Meet at 10am at the Council Car Park, Greys Road, Henley, RG9 2AA, which is free on a Sunday. Please allow enough time to find the car park.

Train: The 08.43am train from London Paddington gets to Henley for 9.55am. If coming by train let the organizers know and one of us will meet you, the start point at Greys Road Car Park is only a short walk away.

You must wear appropriate clothing such as proper walking boots, warm and wet weather clothing and carry sufficient food and water and with winter light a small torch is also useful.

    What a great day. Unlike other groups I've walked with, this one was well planned, we didn't get lost and returned during day light hours!. Couldn't really ask for more on a meetup.
    I can't wait to join you all again
