Fri, 19/10/2018 - 09:45

General event

Part of the Chilterns Walking Festival, this walk will start from the 'Bull on Bell Street' in Henley-on-Thames, home of Brakspear's micro-brewery. Henley was once a thriving inland port. We will follow the historic back streets of Henley down to the River and walk along a beautiful stretch of the Thames Path National Trail towards Hambleden lock. From there we will meander along quiet lanes back to the 'Bull on Bell Street' for a tour of Brakspear’s microbrewery (not normally open to the public!) and a chance to taste their craft beers. Optional home-baked pie lunch and a chance to taste the craft beers made on the premises. The walk will be led by Richard Mayon-White, author of 'Exploring the Thames Wilderness'.
