It’s always great to discover somewhere new to visit, especially if it is really close to home! On Sunday we set off for a walk with the vague idea of parking at a nearby lock and walking along the river, before finding a pub with a sunny beer garden. Rather than following our usual route, we went to explore a very overgrown looking footpath in the opposite direction. It was so lovely…much wilder and more peaceful than the lock footpath. We even discovered a scenic route back to the pub garden! I’m really looking forward to walking this route again soon (with the baby carrier next time, not the buggy!) and following the Thames Path a little further along to the next village.
