Ramblers experience The Wokingham Way
August 13, 2012
Walkers admired a new trail around the borough’s boundary at the official opening of the Wokingham Way.
Loddon Valley Ramblers launched the 56-mile trail with 56 walkers alongside the River Thames near Henley.
Councillor Angus Ross, Wokingham Borough Council’s executive member for environment, cut the ribbon near Temple Island on Thursday, August 2.
The trail guides walkers along the riverbanks of Sonning and Wargrave, north to Henley before looping south to Sandhurst, west as far as Beech Hill and then north via Reading.
The long-distance walk follows the Wokingham borough boundary and is split into short stages of between four and seven miles with links to public transport.
The footpaths have been checked and clearly marked by the Ramblers, who have produced maps for each section.
