Route description

This route option corrects the access problem SlouIve One has at Slough station (routes through station, which isn't possible without a ticket to travel). It now heads North from the station along a busy B road to the canal terminus, and then follows the towpath east from there. Otherwise it is as SlouIve One, and just as delightful along the canalside, and the fields on the approach to Iver. Mostly pavement and canal towpath, short stretch of narrow uneven path when accessing the towpath at Iver.
