Summary: The Wokingham Way is a walk which circumnavigates the historic market town of Wokingham in Berkshire. It was contrived, designed and laid out over a number of months by Loddon Valley Ramblers, with the aim of designing a long-distance walk which followed the Wokingham Borough boundary as far as possible, but with the overriding goal of developing a walk, and series of walks, which would be as attractive as possible. The walk is immensely varied, from the majesty of the broad Thames, where the path follows the river's course north of Henley, passing the weir at Hambleden Lock, to ancient lanes and byways and open fields, and an Iron Age hill fort at Crowthorne Wood and an enclosed deer park at Culham Court. It also includes some of the Blackwater Valley with its lakes, passes the Madejski Stadium and goes through central Reading along the Kennet to reach the Thames. From start to finish the walk goes via Lower Shiplake, Henley on Thames, Mill End, Ashton, Holly Cross, Knowl Hill, Waltham St Lawrence, Shurlock Row, Binfield, Edgebarrow Woods Nature Reserve, Coppid Beech, Ambarrow Court, Eversley, Bramshill Plantation, Riseley, Beech Hill, Madejski Stadium, Reading, Sonning and back to Shiplake Station.
