    Walk: Egham to Addlestone

    3.At the end of the path through Thorpe Park, I think it should say 'Eventually reach the M3.Follow the path round to the left.Walk parallel to the M3 for a short distance and then hold to the left.Emerge on the busy A320 road.

    Ogham To Auddlestone
    Walk: Egham to Addlestone

    It's a great walk but three comments. 1.I agree with Janet that the part of the walk between Prune Hill and Stroud Road is impassible. There is a gate next to a house when you leave Prune Hill, which looks promising, but it leads into a field which is bounded by streams that as as far as I can see cannot be crossed.
