A short flat walk through town, village and countryside, with a glimpse of the spectacular Thorpe Park rides. A good walk for a brisk winter's day.

This footpath is an intriguing one in that it passes next to Thorpe Park, one of England's best known theme parks.Many of the exotic and outlandish rides are visible from this path. Eventually we emerge on the busy A320 road. Cross with care and enter Chertsey via St. Ann's Road.

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. Turn left, cross the bridge over the M3 and take the path down to the left on the other side of the bridge. Continue on this until you meet St. Ann's Road.'

2. Where it says 'Clockhouse Lane' it should say 'Coldharbour Lane.'

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. I ended up taking another track which brings you out further down Stroud Road.

Which Bit?

Hi Janet, thanks for the feedback. Which bit exactly is causing the problem? Between which waypoints? If you can clarify we can ask the walk submitter if he knows.

Walk Egham To Addlestone

We recently moved to Thorpe Village TW20 8TE and we have been discovering the walk from Egham to ADdlestone. But mostly starting in Thorpe Village and working our way north to Egham. We found the Thorpe Bypass and the footbridge across the M25 and then the field to Stroude Rd and the footpath almost across the Stroude Rd. to Prune Hill. This leg is unpassaable. Anybody know about this?

What do you think?
