Having crossed Maidenhead Bridge you turn upstream through the Bridge Gardens and suddenly you have to briefly join the road to avoid one building.
On Shrove Tuesday Windsor & Maidenhead Council’s rights of way & highways licensing panel agreed that a riverside path should be created. If negotiation with residents fails members are prepared to consider a path creation order and a public inquiry.
Margaret Bowdery, who has just retired after 43 years as East Berkshire Ramblers footpath secretary, remains hopeful of a solution being found without the need for a public inquiry.
The Thames Path continues as a riverside path in front of the upstream building.
