Walk 8: Windsor and Eton

The sky seemed keen to play its part in perpetuating the story about where Conservative party policy is dreamed up: as we crossed the playing fields at Eton it provided a deep blue backdrop for the poplar trees.

A circular walk from Windsor through the Home Park, round the north side of Eton then back along the Thames was always going to be dominated by one thing: the view of Windsor Castle.
