Ancient Routes and Landscapes

Just like Mole in ‘Wind in the Willows’, your journey along the river will whet your appetite for distant horizons glimpsed along the way. Following the River Thames from Goring to Wallingford, The Ridgeway and the Thames Path provide ready routes into the peaceful heart of the South Oxfordshire countryside. Take this countryside slowly to enjoy the detail of its hidden pleasures.
