A flat walk over many paths not frequently used. The first part of the walk has some very interesting houses. Definitely a walk for plane spotters.

Staines, Buckinghamshire?

This looks like an interesting walk although I would not agree with the description that the walk starts and finishes in Buckinghamshire. Staines (Or Staines-upon-Thames) is currently in Surrey but was previously in Middlesex.

What do you think?
