Red Kite Walks

These circular walks pass through beautiful Chiltern valleys where red kites are abundant, especially between October and April. You can also enjoy panoramic views, ancient beech woods and rolling farmland. There is a choice of walks depending on how far you want to go or how much time you have. The Piddington walk (4.5 miles) has no stiles or kissing gates and in dry weather is suitable for all terrain pushchairs. The Radnage walk is longer (5.5 miles) and there are several steep uphill slopes, but the Valley is a charming and very tranquil secret in the heart of the Chilterns.

You can start, break or finish your walk with a tasty meal or refreshing drink. This is close to the place where red kites were first re-introduced and you will be very unlucky if you don't see at least several of these wonderful birds.
