Cookham and Winter Hill walk
- Thursday 6th July -
The July walk started in the delightful Berkshire village of Cookham.
The celebrated 20th century British painter Sir Stanley Spencer was born here,
and there is a small gallery of his works in the village.
We followed the Thames for a couple of miles admiring the impressive properties
on the opposite bank and passing a maverick hostelry called 'The Bounty', proudly proclaiming to be twinned with Chernobyl.
Moving away from the river there was a gentle climb up Winter Hill giving great views across the Thames valley, although the viewing point at the top was partly obscured
by the summer’s growth.
The return to Cookham was via pleasant fields and the well-kept local golf course owned by the John Lewis Partnership.
||Ready for refreshments,
a beautifully warm day,
the ten walkers
were well looked after
in The Kings Arms,
