I've made a new route Winhor Two, which resolves the access problem at Windsor, and also has less walking alongside the B376.

I walked from Horton towards Windsor. The B376 into Datchet is busy, and the pavements are sometimes quite narrow.
The approach to Windsor, as has been pointed out elsewhere, routes through the posh side of the Home Park (not open to the public), although it's easy enough to walk on the other side instead.

I think because of the access issues at Windsor this route option isn't really suitable to stay in the Slow Ways network, but Winhor Two should be a satisfactory alternative.

This route is entirely along roads. It starts in Windsor, outside the Central railway station. Walkers then proceed downhill (which is steep and, during the tourist season, busy) to join Datchet Road (which becomes King Edward VII Avenue). The route map shows a deviation to the south near Windsor and Eton Riverside railway station which would take users either into Windsor Castle grounds or into a car park which is, save for vehicle access, fenced. The route map then shows users rejoining the road near the Victoria Bridge abutment. There is no pedestrian access at this point.

The route continues along the B470 which has a 40MPH speed limit and into Datchet.

The route leaves Datchet on the B376 which, once outside the built-up area, has a 40MPH speed limit. However, it also has a local reputation as a bit of a speedway. The path in the built-up area is obstructed by vehicles parking with one wheel on the pavement. As this can happen on both sides of the road, wheelchair users may have difficulty.

To the south-east of Datchet, the pavement switches sides and there are no dropped kerbs. Furthermore, there is a point where the footpath narrows to 57cm due to the presence of a wall protecting a culvert which passes below the road.

Near the start the route detours off the B470 into Home Park - which is private property and inaccessible. If you stick to the road you will be OK. There is a better detour along the river on the north side, but it is down some steep steps by the bridge so maybe that's why it is not taken.
