Eton Wick

Berkshire. Mon 14 Jan 2019



 I caught a bus to Old Windsor which goes through Englefield Green, past the cemetery

 and the green

 We then were driven to Eton Wick, parkin gby the Greyhoud pub - whicj was these figures on its roof

 We walked down a lane and then turned off on a footpath beside a ditch across Eton Great Common

 

 I think this was a watering place for cattle, though there were none in sight

 

 

 

 The path goes under the A322 (The Royal Windsor Way)

 where there was some graffiti

 

 and junk

 Further on there was a lifebelt

 

 Brunel's great viaduct, built for broad gauge, built between 1861-5 is one of the longest viaducts in the UK

 The line is a branch from Slough to Windsor and runs into Windsor and Eton Central station (also by Brunel)

 

 

 

 Bridge over Eton Wick Road

 One of the posts marking the National Cycle Network

 

 Graffiti on the viaduct and Windsor Castle. Helch is apparently a"word used to show disgust to peas and landmarks"

 steps up to the A322

 and the A322 bridge across a backwater of the River Thames

 

 

 The brdige carries the Thames path across the backwater

 

 Looking roughy north across South Field

 Bicycle at Athens, an Eton College bathing place on the THames

 Bathing Regulations At Athens

 and a memorial there

 The Walk goes up to the Greyhound Pub

 Coming back on the bus - Englefield Green

and I walked back along Richmond Road, Staines
