Pick up your Nordic walking poles and stride out from Jerome K Jerome's "bustling, lively little town" of Marlow onto the banks of the Thames where "the river itself is at its best". As we walk along the river, the ‘Wild Wood’ (Quarry Wood) of Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows rises up on the opposite bank. We cross the river at Bourne End passing over Cock Marsh with its Bonze Age burial mounds and up onto Winter Hill. From here we explore the ‘Wild Wood’ before dropping back down to cross the iconic suspension bridge over the Thames and back into Marlow.
Meet at the entrance to Higginson Park on the High Street.
