Description

This links Spoke 8N in Langley Park south to Spoke 8S on Slough Arm Canal, but continues west on the improved towpath of the Slough Arm Canal. The whole route is fairly family friendly but the best riding is within Burnham Beeches.

On Trenches Lane at 0.9 NCN61 is signed R, but the route is unclear; better to reach the canal 1.1 (For Spoke 8 S L at the bridge 1.6 to pick up NCN 61 signs over the railway and on through Langley) - and then follow it to its abrupt terminus 3.3. Follow Stoke Road S 3.4 to reach Slough and fast frequent services. A few suburban Slough streets (L, R, L, R) and NCN461 is met in Baylis Gardens 4. The chicane-protected cyclepath takes you to Farnham Royal 5.7 and then it’s a quiet road N to Burnham Beeches and a reunion with Spoke 8N.
