We will start from the 'Bull on Bell Street' in Henley-on-Thames, home of Brakspear's micro-brewery. Henley was once a thriving inland port. We will follow the historic back streets of Henley down to the River and walk along a beautiful stretch of the Thames Path National Trail towards Hambleden lock. From there we will meander along quiet lanes back to the 'Bull on Bell Street'. On our return we will have the chance to taste one of the craft beers made on site and hear about the on-site brewing. You can enjoy an optional home-baked pie lunch and afterwards a 15 minute tour of the tiny microbrewery. The walk will be led by Richard Mayon-White, author of 'Exploring the Thames Wilderness'.
There is a special menu for walkers wanting to stay on for lunch, £11 for a Steak and Ale Pie meal or a vegetarian option, which must be pre-booked in advance with your walk ticket.
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!
