    PriceFree - Donations on the day to Breast Cancer Now 'Wear it Pink' campaign gratefully received.

A double-loop walk in the lovely countryside around Goring-on-Thames supporting the Breast Cancer Now ‘Wear it Pink’ campaign. We will explore the Chilterns from the inside and outside as we climb the hills that frame the Goring Gap on each side of the River Thames.

Bring your walking poles to lighten the effort and the views will be worth it! Each loop will start and finish at the Village Chocolate Cafe in Goring where we can rest for some well earned refreshment. Walkers may choose the morning loop (6 miles) or the full day (9 miles combined).
