Description

Path between Goring and Wallingford, following the well-signposted Ridgeway route. Part paved roads, part river tow path, this route is passable almost all year round, but in wetter seasons wellies are highly recommended. There is very little climbing, other than a little between Goring and South Stoke. During flooding seasons parts become totally impassable, but there are alternate footpaths on higher ground that should be dry. There are some lovely historic churches on the route, particularly in North Stoke and Newnham Murren.

1. Goring --> South Stoke: Quiet paved residential streets and gravel pathways on high ground. No flooding risk.
2. South Stoke --> North Stoke: Ridgeway continues through South Stoke Village, then descends to follow the tow path. Passable for most of the year, though muddy in wetter months. Liable to flood when river high. Alternatively take the footpath north off Ferry Rd via Little Stoke, and follow back road to North Stoke.
3. North Stoke --> Crowmarsh Gifford: Ridgeway path continues on dirt road and roughly paved paths through Mongewell and Newnham Murren. Follow ridgeway signs till the path meets The Street in Crowmarsh Gifford.
4. Crowmarsh Gifford --> Wallingford. Turn left onto The Street and cross bridge onto Wallingford High Street. Turn left onto St Martin's Street for the market place and the end of this route

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.
