Commonwealth Walkways Panel unveiled


Commonwealth Walkways, planned and installed by the Outdoor Trust, are guided walks through selected regions of each Commonwealth Country. Each Walkway is marked by marker discs in the pavements along the route, with a Summary Panel at the beginning of the route.

In April, at Buckingham Palace, the Queen unveiled a new panel promoting all of the Commonwealth Walkways. This panel, now in place outside Marlborough House, also heralds England's Commonwealth Walkway. That Walkway marks the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and is an extension of the original Jubilee Walkway in London. The new route runs along Pall Mall and the Strand linking the headquarters of the Commonwealth Secretariat with the High Commissions of 9 Commonwealth countries and HM Government of Gibraltar.

There is already a Walkway in Windsor, and last year a new one was installed in Eton. In anticipation of the Royal Wedding in Windsor this month, Eton Community Association and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead decided to install the Eton Walkway Panel on 21 March 2018 at the start of the Walkway on Eton Bridge. The panel, which is yet to be formally unveiled, promotes the Eton Walkway, a 2 mile route around the pretty Berkshire town just over the bridge from Windsor. There are 18 points of particular significance connected by the Walkway, including Prince Harry's old school.

Other new Commonwealth Walkways include the Gold Coast Commonwealth Walkway (unveiled in April by Prince Charles), and the first plaque of a new Walkway project has been laid in Perth, Australia.
