Cookham to Maidenhead

Date: 23rd January (end 1st week)

This walk explores the beautiful village of Cookham and its surrounding woodland, before following the Thames Path to Maidenhead. There will be some great views of the Thames Valley early on in the walk. If people are interested, we will also be able to take a slight detour to see Kenneth Grahame’s (author of Wind in the Willows) old house, which is now a prep school.

Please note: Walking shoes/boots are essential for this walk as it will be muddy in places!
