DATE UPDATED TO SUNDAY
Duration: Half day walk.
Directions: Allow 45 minutes from Guildford. The most straightforward route is via M25 and M4, Junction 7 (signposted Eton).
For a more cross-country route taking about the same time, use the A322 Bagshot to cross the M3 and turn right onto the A332 signposted Windsor. Follow the A332 past Ascot Racecourse then look for a turning to the left (B383) signposted Slough to avoid Windsor town centre. Follow the road past LEGOLAND (when it becomes the B3022) all the way to Windsor. Continue to follow the signs to Slough through Windsor and continue onto a dual carriageway over the River Thames. As the M4 comes into view, bear left onto the A332 once more signposted to Eton.
Once you reach Eton village, follow the road round in a left-hand curve past Eton College and then turn immediately right onto the B3026 signposted Dorney (which takes you first under a railway bridge, then the dual carriageway you may have just left). Continue to Eton Wick and then Dorney. Beyond Dorney Common, a conservation area is reached. As the road curves to the right (Lake End Road) the Jubilee River car park is on the right hand side just before the bridge crossing the river channel. (It is also possible to access the site from the Eastern end of the river starting in Eton Wick.)
Habitat: Riverside walk on mainly firm paths.
Attractions: Waterfowl and woodland birds can be found all year round. Red Kites are almost guaranteed. Possible birds include: Sedge Warbler, Hobby, Common Tern, Cuckoo, Water Rail and Grey Wagtail.
Amenities: No facilities
Please bring appropriate clothing and footwear for conditions on the day which can be subject to change at any time. You will be expected to use the walk in such a way as not to place yourselves or others at risk and to follow all requirements set by the walk leader.
