There is some confusion about path closures in the Egham area following the discovery of Foot and Mouth disease earlier this week.
Surprisingly, the towpath along Runnymede remains open.
However, a short section downstream to the south at Chertsey is closed. This is Dumsey Mede (also known as Dumsey Meadow) alongside Chertsey Bridge. The alternative route which is being signposted follows a short footpath north to the road and turns left for a quarter of a mile of road to Chertsey Bridge.
Any further waymarked change on the ground should, of course, be followed.
