by nikv


The way points of this running / walking route:


The car park is a good starting point for this route. It can get flooded and you could end up with muddy boots. Oh and I would recommend good walking boots for this route as it can get wet.


Golf course can just about be seen on the left and the Thames river to the right

Cross under the railway bridge and keep to the right through the fence. A new fence and gate was recently made. You may see a fallen tree at this point.

Past the trees on the right the open flood area can now clearly be seen. Usually it contains cows.

A little bridge here shows that the floor area can fill up a bit.

Keep on the path

Path is now gaining steepness and rising above the trees on the right

You are now leaving the main path for the upward path on the left, traveling through woodland and gate.

Winter Hill

You now arrive at the top of the path and enter the road to Winter Hill, turn right and keep walking up the road.

Road continues up towards the car park on the right. Good viewing point up on the right. Marlow can be seen very clearly in the distance and the Crown Plaza Hotel complex.

Viewing point

At this point take a right turn towards the right most corner point where the house ends. There is a little path and public right of way. Take this little path to the right of the house wall and follow it round through the woodland area.

Continue through the woods bearing left at the end through the woods.

You arrive a good path and take a left turn

Now take the a right turn on the end of the gardens of adjoining gardens. The path takes you to the main road.

At the road you now take a left turn and at the junction take a right turn.

You will have past some very nice houses on the left and come to the end of these with open fields to the left. Before you walk past the fields take a left turn at the entrance to the farm. You will notice a footpath at the end on the right hand side of the field. Continue up the field path.

Follow the edge of the field. In winter time the farm rears Free Range Turkey's!!!

At the top of the field you will see a stile. Cross the stile into the tree lined area. Continue on the left though the trees on the muddy path until you come to the hotel and pub.

Pub on the corner. Nice place to stop.

Cross over the common aiming for the top corner.

Walk down Hills Lane

Uncle Toms Cabin on the right. This is a great watering hole!!!!!! They have good beers.. Keep left onto Wamers Hill road.

Continue down the road and turn right at the bottom

Turn right through the dean

Keep left on the Alleyns Lane

Continue up the hill

At the top cross the road straight and stile and continue on the path over the field.

Aim for the houses at the top of the field

At the road cross the road straight and you will find the path continues.

Keep right. You keep to the left of the trees on the right.

You will now see the golf course in front of you. You are aiming to cross the gold course without being hit by a golf ball. It is a public right of way to walk straight across. The path can just about be seen as worn grass. Aim for the outbuildings ahead.

Cross the outbuildings straight through and keep to the rough path.

Cross the public bridge over the railway line then turn right and continue along the path.

Keep to the path

At the end of the path you arrive at a car park. Keep left and you will see a metal fence and gate. To the right hand end of the gate is a little gap you can squeeze through. This path is the public footpath. Continue to the bottom of the path past the golf course on the left.

At the bottom turn left the cut right onto the other path and turn right and you return to the original path you came out on.

You arrive back at the car park in Cookham!!!
