This month Bob led us to a previously unexplored area around Taplow. It was a windy morning but the rain stayed away so we set off from the car park near Taplow Church, went through a series of kissing gates and then reached the A4.
We followed the lane under the railway & past the lake on the left before crossing a number of fields and The Jubilee River, after a while we reached The Thames. We stopped for a quick break whilst enjoying the views of the luxury houses along the Berkshire side of the river.
Continuing our stroll we arrived at Brunel’s Railway Bridge, which is known as “the sounding arch” because of its echo. The bridge has the flattest & widest brick built arch in the world and really is an example of amazing engineering.
After "testing" the echo we headed back to the A4 where we crossed into Mill Lane before following the path back to Taplow.
Total distance 3.8 miles, lots of laughter and some beautiful sights along the wa!
Of course no ramble is complete until lunch and a pint are consumed, this time at The Feathers, across the road from Cliveden House. Apparently, Edward VIII frequented the pub during the 1870's when he was Prince of Wales, just another little known fact we thought we'd share with everyone!
Here's to the next wander round the countryside!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
