This circular walk of three miles starts at Newbridge and follows the Thames Path beside the river for about a mile and a half. Start at the Rose Revived Pub and walk downriver through the meadows. When you reach a wooden footbridge, cross over to the Appleton side of the river. The bridge is known by various names, including Rainbow, but Harts Bridge recalls the name of a weir that used to be at this place. There was once a small wharf serving the nearby farms, but all signs of this are buried under bushes and nettles.
From the bridge, the route goes through a copse to a small field and though a hedge. After the hedge, look for a metal kissing gate on the right hand side. This starts the footpath that goes back to Newbridge. The footpath follows the line of the hedgerows, with metal gates between each field, until you are within sight and sound of the road from Kingston Bagpuize to Newbridge. In this last field, the path goes through the hedgerow to a small wood, where it leads you back to Newbridge near the Maybush Inn.
