There is good news of a possible improvement ti the route at Maidenhead.
After crossing Maidenhead Bridge walkers turn right into Bridge Gardens but then find the way blocked by Bridge House.
Thanks to the persistence and local knowledge of East Berks Ramblers’ footpath secretary Margaret Bowdery the Royal Borough has published plans for a long awaited riverside path in front of Bridge House.
At present walkers have to cross the busy Ray Mill Road twice.
There is a public consultation in progress.
