Description

(D/A) Turn right outside the front of the pub and walk up Remenham Lane in a westerly direction for about 200 yards.

(1) Then just before the ‘Kill your Speed’ sign, take the footpath to the left either going over the stile or manoeuvring round the end of the field gate. Walk up the hill, following the path and keeping to the left of the field, through a narrow strip of woodland to the top.

(2) At a T junction of paths, turn right onto the other footpath and follow this path across the top of the hill for just over half a mile with fine views looking over the Thames and Hambleden valley. You will eventually arrive at Remenham Church Lane. If the field gate is closed and locked you will have to use the stile, turn right here and walk along the lane until it joins Remenham Church Lane merging from the right. Continue to follow the lane downhill until you reach a junction.

(3) Turn right here, passing the entrance to the Church of St Nicholas Remenham. This lane is a cul-de-sac. Walk down to the end then pass the entrance to Rememham Manor to pick up a footpath that connects with the Thames Path.

(4) Turn right and continue walking along the Thames Path to Temple Island then pass Hambleden Lock. Continue following the river until you reach Aston Ferry Lane.

(5) Turn right and walk up the lane to arrive back at the Flower Pot pub.(D/A)

During the walk or to do/see around

There has been a church on this site since time immemorial. The first Rector is mentioned in a Westminster Abbey Charter in 1076; the church is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086; and the first rector, John de Baldake, was recorded in 1297. Originally, the church was a chapelry of Hurley and served by the monks of Hurley Priory. The church was substantially restored in 1838 and again in 1870 when the south transept was added.

Temple Island was constructed and designed as a fishing lodge for Fawley Court by Architect James Watt in 1771. The Island is now owned by Henley Royal Regatta and is the starting point of the 1.25 mile Regatta course.
