Chilterns and Thames Valley

A muddy Christmas Eve

Ascent: 72 metres
Duration: 2 hours 51 minutes

Walk 20: Marlow and Hurley

The weather was dry this morning, and the sun was trying its hardest to put in an appearance. Mum fancied a riverside walk, so this circuit between Marlow and Hurley seemed ideal.

Unfortunately the previous forty-eight hours of rain had turned the riverside path northeast of Temple Lock into a slippery, muddy mess. So despite a wonderful start to the walk - the village of Hurley in particular is worth a look, with its beautiful church, tithe barn and manor - the abiding memory will be the mud.
