Point of Interest

Coast Line,wild ponies Historic area,Thatched Inn

Four delightful walks - some with a chance to see wild ponies!

Domesday Book records Maidencombe as having 1 villager,2 smallholders & 1 slave (!). Today due to its locality it still consists of only a few houses.

Any walk to or from Maidenhead includes hills,some quite steep almost halving your walking speed.

Walk 1 (3.5 miles)


Labrador Bay Cark (free on Sunday else £1 only)

Caution:This walk includes some very steep descents and is as much a challenge as an ordeal depending on your knees and stamina - try walk 1b instead.
However,it is most rewarding with magnificent views of the coast and very dramatic countryside grazed by ponies.
