These walks take in some of the most scenic places in the northern Chilterns, through rolling farmland, magnificent beechwoods and through carpets of wildflowers in summer. There are 2 circular walks from Harlington railway station, a long one of 7 miles or a shorter 5.5 mile version. There is also a short easy stroll of 1.5 miles from The Lynmore pub in Sharpenhoe. Enjoy the beauty of the Sundon Hills Country Park, and the wonderful views from the National Trust-owned Sharpenhoe Clappers. Harlington, which is on the rail line between London and Bedford, is a great place to start the walks and has a couple of pubs for refreshments. En route you will use part of the ancient Icknield Way and the Chiltern Way.
