This 9 mile circular walk from Goring takes in the Moulsford Downs and ends with a pub lunch social in Streatley.

Walk details

Starting at Goring train station we’ll head north along the Berkshire bank of the Thames and enjoy this beautiful stretch of the river, taking in the weirs and islands along the way. We’ll then head west through the Moulsford Downs, gently assending through woodland, before returning to Streatley along the Ridgeway. The walk will end less than a mile from Goring station at the Bull Inn in Streatley where you’re welcome to stay for a pub lunch. The Unhill Wood will provide some nice shelter while we’re assending, but most of this walk is in the open. If it is a sunny day (fingers crossed) please remember sunscreen / a hat. Hopefully we’ll be eating in the pub garden too.
