Henley via Hambleden Circular. 17/2/18.

Around 9 miles of walking in Berks and Bucks, initially following the wilder, left side of the Thames, which is far better than the busier right bank. Plenty of wild-life on this side and some amazing aerial displays were given by Kites (though not recorded), possibly territorial. Then, up into typical Chiltern beechwoods before descending into the pleasant village of Hambleden. Lunch is had at the village church of St Mary-the-Virgin (resting place of legendary Deep Purple keyboard player, Jon Lord, though I didn't know that at the time!), followed by a further ascent along the side of the valley, with some pleasant views of the previous journey. Then, it's over the thunderous weir at Hambleden Lock, before a gentle climb over Remenham Hill and back into Henley. A very nice walk with a pleasant contrast of river, wood and valley. Some decent weather as well!
