The walk of this week takes us to Flamstead village, situated just on the western boundary of the Chilterns AONB. The village is steeped in history, dating from at least Saxon times. There is a wealth of fascinating buildings including the church tower which dates from 1140. Flamstead has several good pubs and provides a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside.
The Flamstead Farmland Walk* passes through gently undulating arable land in the upper reaches of the Ver Valley. Sunken lanes and ancient hedgerows are testament to the ancient nature of the landscape. A short circular route of 2.5 miles and a longer circular route of 6 miles are on offer. They both start from a car park on the edge of the village where there is also cycle parking.
