The Walk

The walk is approx 8 miles 4 before lunch and 4 in the afternoon. There are no hills at all !!. There may be some muddy patches if it has rained but it was very dry on the trial walk! The morning walk will follow the Thames Path to Benson and the return in the afternoon is on good farm tracks.



Will be at the Waterfront Cafe at Benson ( ). They serve a wide range of items from sandwiches and steaks and includes burgers, salads and 'pub grub' items. They don't accept bookings but have asked me to let them know we are coming a couple of days beforehand and they will try to set aside some tables for us. Please let me know if you are coming by 7.00pm on Thursday 13th October



If you wish to attend this walk you MUST register in advance  with the walk leader John Biscomb before 7.00pm on Thursday 13th October - by E Mail please.

The start times are all 10:00 am unless otherwise stated. The mileages quoted are a rough guide only and liable to change on the day. In extreme cases the walk may change completely so contacting the walk leader a couple of days in advance is recommended.

In the event of rain please do still meet us at the appointed venue, generally the walk will still take place or we will consider alternative plans.

Though we aim to take a common sense approach to the safety of our members and those present at STRIDE events, all those attending do so at their own risk.
