Walk Around Wargrave

The village of Wargrave is on the Berkshire bank of the river Thames between Reading and Henley. Wargrave local historian, Peter Delaney, is leading this guided walk in which you can learn about the village’s fascinating history around the area of Mill Green, including the churchyard, and the High Street of Wargrave. The walk takes about one and a half to two hours, and is mainly on made-up pathways.

The meeting place in Wargrave will be notified in the week running up to the walk. 

Numbers are limited, so pre-booking is required. Bookings close three days before the walk.
