This circular walk starts/finishes at Goring railway station. Out route initially follows the Chiltern Way taking us up through Great Chalk Wood onto the Chilterns plataux. Here there are some fine views across Goring Gap. We descend through Hartslock Nature Reserve to the river and follow the Thames Path to Goring Lock. A short walk takes us through the village back to the railway station. On this walk we will have the opportunity to take in the special landscape of Goring Gap, where the Chilterns AONB meets the North Wessex Downs AONB - a landscape which has been forged by nature and adapted by man over thousands of years.
Pre/post walk refreshment available in Goring village (cafes/pubs). Toilets in Goring village car park (Station Road). Suitable for children over 12, when accompanied by an adult.
Complete Outdoors are our primary sponsors for 2018 & 2019. At their Bourne End (Herts) shop, you will discover all of the equipment, clothing and accessories you need to launch your next expedition into the great outdoors - whether a day's hike close to home, or an assault on the Matterhorn.
Could this be you? We are seeking additional sponsors to enable the festival to continue going from strength to strength - get in touch with AWeiss@chilternsaonb.org if you'd like to know more!
