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.

From Taplow Riverside to Hedsor, the route does not exist. The footpaths are not present, the land is part of Taplow Court (private) or Cliveden (National Trust) and the 3rd apparent river crossing on the Jubilee river is not present at all. Additionally, the first foot river crossing is blocked off as well, undergoing repairs.
From Maidenhead to Taplow Riverside is fine, although not very attractive. After Hedsor, skirting Bourne End, though Wooburn Green (cafe!) and into Beaconsfield, it is a safe route. There are stiles.

This route does not exist. There is no path on this side of the river from Maidenhead and it is not accessible.

The route suggested is not accessible - there is no access to the Buckinghamshire bank of the Thames from Taplow Riverside running north to Cliveden (see photo), nor from Cliveden to Hedsor. An alternative is to follow the Thames Path along the Berkshire bank to Cookham Bridge and then take the footpath to Hedsor and rejoin the existing route; but an even better (shorter) alternative is to follow the National Trust path from Maidenhead town centre through Maidenhead Commons to Cookham and thence over the bridge. The route from Cookham to Beaconsfield via Hedsor and Berghers Hill is lovely; it's worth the small detour to visit Cookham and Hedsor churches.
