|Cookham and Strand Water|
|Author: Claire, Published: 19 Feb 2012||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A 2 mile short stroll from the picturesque and popular village of Cookham in Berkshire. Cookham is well known for its selection of independent village shops along with a wide range of pubs and restaurants and its Thames setting, and so provides a lovely place to explore. The village is said to be home to lots of famous people including rugby coach Sir Clive Woodward and presenter Ulrika Jonsson. The walk follows a short route south alongside Strand Water, a wide stream, before crossing the water and returning north through paddocks and fields. |
The walk is relatively flat and follows field and streamside paths which may be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles, but several gates including one kissing gate. Approximate time 1 hour.
The walk starts from the free car park on Cookham Moor which lies to the north of the B4447 (High Street) directly opposite a brick built arched bridge. Approximate postcode SL6 9SB.
|Cookham Moor to Green Way East|
Start point: 51.5602 lat, -0.7139 long
Leave the car park by the vehicle entrance, cross the main B4447 road (signed To The Green Way), and climb up the small grass embankment opposite alongside the brick built arched bridge. Turn left onto the tarmac path and follow this towards the village.
|Green Way East to Strand Water Bridge|
Start point: 51.5593 lat, -0.7113 long
Turn left along the footpath marked as Green Way East. Follow the narrow footpath alongside a brick wall and then continue ahead as the path emerges into a section between fields, with a metal fence on the right.
|Strand Water Bridge to Riding School|
Start point: 51.5484 lat, -0.7171 long
At the T-junction turn right (signed Green Way West) and cross the small wooden footbridge over Strand Water. Go ahead and you will come to a concrete bridge ahead. Do NOT cross the concrete bridge – instead turn right immediately before it through a gap in the fence signed Green Way West. Turn immediately right again through a gate into a paddock. (Note the paddocks may be very muddy after wet weather.)
|Riding School to Cookham Moor|
Start point: 51.5504 lat, -0.7171 long

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
