Help connect Beaconsfield

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Beaconsfield’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

As the previous reviewer said, the Slough section is rather mundane running along the back lanes, but at least it’s away from the main road. The walk to and from Beaconsfield is roughly 1.5 hours and predominantly off road with the exception of a short element at the top of Burnham Beeches, which needs to be handled with a little care during the school run or rush hour....

For most of the walk along this road, there is a footpath separated from the road by (many) trees. After crossing Beaconsfield road, there is a little bit more lane walking before you need to find a footpath that gets you out onto Farnham Park....

There is a tiny stretch of road walking, followed by a neat straight line walk up a hill through fields with a windmill over the trees. At some point just after leaving Amersham there is a switch back in the route to go up the hill, through the middle of a field, and then after having walked a little at the top, it directs you back down off the hill to the path that you were just one....

Crossing the street (Long Bottom Lane) then brings you across a golf course for quite some time, before crossing the rail way and the new "Beaconsfield Eastern Relief Road" to walk through some residential streets, an alleyway, and along a slightly busy Maxwell Road to find some steep steps down to the station....

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....

It's also very varied with a nice mix of town, woodland and farmland over the short 5-6 miles. I'm not entirely sure why the route bothers going down Magpie lane and then around to Ongar farm after Bowers farm as there's a path straight through....

You then join the Chiltern Way, and once well away from the M40 and the playing fields, it's delightful to Wooburn Green, mainly in woods. From Wooburn Green to Bourne End is dreary, hence my 3 rating, behind an aggregate works and other buildings - surely there's a nicer footpath?...

Slight confusion as the route goes straight across the road at Welder's Lane, but it looked from the map as if it might follow the road briefly. A number of stiles, some steep-ish hills and narrow alleys, so may not be suitable for those with trouble walking or pushing prams etc....

At the end of the rec join the Chiltern Way, got past Kingsmead Business Park and cross the A40, bearing left to go up a lane under the railway line, and then follow the Chiltern Way up to and through Wycombe Heights golf course. This route largely follows the Chiltern Way and then the Berkshire Loop, and is easy to navigate with good country paths and alleyways (‘jitties’) through the suburbs of Beaconsfield....

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....
