GORING STREATLEY CIRCULAR HIKE

This is a hike of

hidden treasuresnext to the beauty of the Thames. The path goes from a riverside village to National Trust land with seriously steep hill and views of unspoilt countryside that make you go wow. We descend into a few miles of flat farmland before heading back up a gentler hill to the tropical looking forest above Thu

rle Down. We stop for a picnic lunch and enjoy the lush sweeping views. The last leg is the always lovely Thames path. We pop into one of Goring’s fine pubs for an indulgent pint or glass of wine before the journey home. Challenge and charm at our usual brisk pace for 10 ½ miles and 350 metres of ascent. Escape all the city with this walking workout in the wonderful English Countryside.

    Good pace, great views & minimal precipitation. Very impressed with the choice of pubs (always worried with some groups that you will be fobbed off with the local Witherspoons) in all a good first walk & glad to know that we are in the words of our fearless leader we are “no longer virgins”.
