The Household Cavalry is to celebrate its return from Afghanistan by holding a 'freedom march' through the streets of Windsor next month.
B Squadron returned from Helmand two months ago and the men were given a much needed holiday. Now they are back in action and will be marching through the town on Wednesday, December 4.
They will leave from Combermere Barracks in St Leonard's Road, marching through Frances Road, Osborne Road, Sheet Street, High Street, Castle Hill, St Albans Street, Park Street and back via the same roads.
Parking restrictions will be the same as for a normal guard change, affecting Sheet Street, High Street, St Albans Street and part of Park Street.
Road closures will be in place for a short period along the route from 10.28am onwards. The affected roads will be St Leonard's Road at its junction with Bolton Road, Frances Road, Sinclair Road, the King Edward VII Hospital entrance, Frances Road, Bolton Avenue, Osborne Road, Alexandra Road, Fairlight Avenue, Adelaide Square, Grove Road, Keppel Street, Sheet Street, Brook Street, Kings Road, Victoria Street, Park Street and Church Lane.
Sheet Street will be closed for longer, between 10.45am and 11.20am north of the traffic lights at the junction with Victoria Street and High Street - as will Thames Street south of the traffic lights at the junction with Datchet Road and Thames Avenue and St Albans Road the whole way along.
