Expect to have to make a short diversion when walking upstream from Henley on Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 March.
A tree is bring felled where the towpath passes the Old House just before Marsh Lock.
The diversion is inland and across a car park to return down Mill Lane.

The death has been announced of former MP Sir Anthony Durant at the age of 88.
Sir Anthony was President of the River Thames Society and a supporter of inland waterways. He was a regular attender at the RTS annual meeting in Henley.
Having just failed to be selected for the parliamentary seat of Kingston-upon-Thames he appropriately became MP for upstream Reading.
A barge blocking navigation immediately upstream of Osney Bridge has been removed.
The narrowboat appears to have broken away from its mooring whilst there was strong current on Thursday afternoon. A forecast of heavy rain caused the Environment Agency to attempt early action.
When this proved difficult a slipway was built on the right bank and eventually the boat was hauled on to the bank more than 24 hours after the accident.
The Oxford Mail has pictures and the River Thames News has an updated report.
The Daily Telegraph has a ’53 free things to do around the world’ feature.
Walking the Thames Path makes it although only just being at number 53.
But at least it is there along with sitting on Rome’s Spanish Steps, wandering around Burano in Venice and seeing the Blue Mosque in Istanbul.
Number 1 is a ride on New York’s Staten Island Ferry.
