Let's go for a walk!

Despite popular belief, we do have those odd sunny yet cold days during the winter. If you’re feeling adventurous, put on your trainers and let’s go for a walk.  Smiley Happy

Farmoor Reservoir is located five miles west of Oxford.  Besides taking in its natural beauty, there’s a four mile walk that offers spectacular views of the water, woodlands, Thames riverside and nature reserves. 

They’ve also built a trail suitable for wheelchairs too. There is a short ramp with a 1:20 slope, and car parking for disabled badge holders is available at the Pinkhill hide at the start of the trail.

 

Crossness Nature Reserve

Crossness Nature Reserve is located in Bexley. This is one of the last grazing marshes in the Greater London area. This is the perfect getaway for some “me” time or spending it with family and friends. If you like to take selfies, there are plenty of scenic spots to get an Instagram worthy shot!

 

Beckton Creekside Nature Reserve

Beckton Creekside Nature Reserve is located in East London. You’re in luck, they suggest during the winter to take their walking path where you can see wintering ducks like teal and wading birds like redshank.

 

Now that I’ve made some suggestions, over to you! Do you have a favourite walking path? Tell us! I love to walk, if you have any pictures of your favourite walking spots, share those too please. Smiley Very Happy

I love the walk down the Thames tow path, from Reading town centre (the path starts by the Loch Fyne building) to Theale. It takes about three hours and there's a nice pub on the way (and at the destination). The area is teeming with waterfowl and there are some fantastic painted canal boats.
