Latest Updates

The Horton Road is unpleasant but unavoidable, this route takes you off it at the earliest opportunity across Datchet Common into Datchet itself. Just past Datchet the path leads onto the golf course. This was easy to walk around on the adjacent Windsor Road and entering the course about 450m further on....

The first and last thirds are alongside a busy Stanwell Road and through fly-tipped motorway under passes. This means avoiding the woods and continuing along Stanwell Road for the entire walk....

You reach the village of Colnbrook (buses), walk along Drift Way and then along the High Street until the junction at Budgens where you head left along mill street and then the foot path past the truckers cafe to the A4. Then into the residential Richings Park, as stated this passes the Iver station (Elizabeth line) where I finished, but is a straightforward walk if you continue into Iver....

As a leisure route the Slough to Datchet part works well, and there’s good links to Eton and Windsor by this routing too. I have also enjoyed walking Slough to Sunnymeads (and vv) using this route, including the path across Datchet Common, as far as the footpath which turns off the Horton Road towards the railway just past the pumping station....

There's a really short stretch along the main road (which leads to Wraysbury station - Waterloo to Windsor line, but this route doesn't get that far). Another small green belt village: unlike Wraysbury there's not much by way of shops, but there is a post office and stores by the benchless village green. Public transport from Horton is the same bus that serves Wraysbury from Staines - an irregular bus service which may not survive another round of cuts I continued on from Horton to Iver on Hortive 3, and caught a train from Iver station....

I turned left to join the Colne Valley Way at Foundry Lane. The lane is used by skip trucks to go to and from a recycling centre - builders’ rubble mostly. I turned left at Thorney Lane and the last 10-15 minutes was a brisk walk along this quite busy road (no other option really) to the meeting point at Iver village....

The first part of the route between Horton and Datchet is the same as Winhor Two. After Datchet the route turns off the road and goes alongside a golf course, crosses the Jubilee River, and approaches Eton through the college playing fields, alongside the renowned Eton Wall. If I had to choose between Etohor Two and Winhor Two I would pick this one because I found the section between Datchet and Eton more interesting than the section between Datchet and Windsor...

The two routes split after Datchet, this one crosses the Thames to Windsor, the other stays on the north side of the river to Eton. After 2 km the route turns left off the B road onto a track which accesses various businesses and housing, and then it goes behind the houses onto Datchet Common. After Datchet the route joins the long distance Thames path as far as the Victoria bridge....

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 leaves Datchet on the B376 which, once outside the built-up area, has a 40MPH speed limit....

Then walk across the M25 at junction 14; the route drawing here is a bit abbreviated but its good enough. Then its back on the busy Stanwell Road with just enough, but no more, pavement, and occasionally there may be a car parked over it. This is a more-than-adequate route in a tricky area to negotiate, what with the airport, the motorway, river and reservoirs....

Jane Taylor

Walk this route

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....
