Walk Like The Clappers

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.
