Beginning in Pangbourne, we follow the Thames west to the village of Streatley, crossover the bridge into Oxfordshire, and stop for lunch on the river bank, in the picturesque village of Goring. We then head east through the oak woods at the base of the Chilterns, before heading south to finish back in Pangbourne.

Bring a packed lunch and a torch. Optional pub stop at the end.
