This 65 mile long route passes through scenic and gentle landscape on its way from Bourton-on-the-Water down to Henley-on-Thames. In doing so it passes through not one but two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - the Cotswolds and the Chilterns. This is a delightful walk through some true English countryside.
