Return train times

Trains return from Cookham at 21 minutes past the hour from platform 1 (This is good news as there is only one platform).  Change at Maidenhead for London stations.
I would suggest you allow 15 minutes for the walk from the tea stop to the station. There's a Co-op opposite the station, should you wish to pick up any food or drink items there.

Is anyone planning to go on this walk?

I am planning to go, but need someone to be on the walk with a print out of the walking directions. Printer out of action again!

n=7 weather w=cloudy-but-mild. Attractive walk mainly along woodland trails. Very little mud and recent dry weather meant we waded through drifts of fallen leaves Excellent lunch at the Jolly Woodman but good reports from those who had a drink at the Blackwood Arms. We did not linger in Cookham but it is worth noting that there is now a Costa Coffee just 40m beyond the station level crossing.
