Description

Windsor to Horton via Datchet. This is one of a number of routes which, when linked together, connect west London with Berkshire. There are green areas and vistas, but unsurprisingly there are encounters with well-used roads, always with some (not much at times it has to be said) pavement.

Leaving Windsor via the Home Park, cross the river Thames, drop down some stairs and walk along the Thames Path to Datchet. Look out for views of Eton College and Windsor Castle.
Datchet has all the hallmarks of a traditional coaching town now overrun by cars. The route runs through the centre of the village, stop for refreshments if you like, and there is also a railway station. Some green respite across Datchet Common follows, until eventually and inevitably the route rolls into Horton on the B376 and the Datchet Road.

Some mud likely along the riverside and on the common. Steps up to/down from the bridge over the Thames. Pavements are narrow in places.

This route is a response to Winhor One, which has access problems at the Windsor end; as well as sorting that out, I've taken the opportunity to reduce some of the B376 walking by routing via Datchet Common

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.
