Weekend Life....Thames Path Walk, Pangbourne to Goring-on-Thames

English Countryside Walk: Thames Path, Pangbourne to Goring-on-Thames, July 2015. 

A lovely walk by the Thames in July this year. We caught an early train from Paddington and started the walk in Pangbourne (but you can easily reverse the order or do a circular walk from Pangbourne to Goring and then back to Pangbourne). 

Long time readers (hello!!) might recall a visit to the lovely cafe Pierreponts in Goring-on-Thames a few years ago. We returned and it was just as nice as on our last visit. A delicious slice of homemade cake (rhubarb and custard sponge cake for me) and latte to refuel after a couple of hours of walking.
