Five 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.

Combe means a valley with grassy hills

Walk 1 Maidencombe (3.5 miles)

A strenuous but most rewarding walk with magnificent views of the coast and very dramatic countryside grazed by ponies.

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.
