Starting at Link Road car park, the walk visits three Midsomer Murders locations in Great Missenden, including the bank where a dead thief’s loot is hidden.

The walk to Little Missenden is across fields and through woods. There will be a short refreshment stop at the Red Lion which has had at least three different names in various episodes, and the church with interesting wall paintings is frequently featured. After walking alongside the River Misbourne, our route enters Amersham where the creepy funeral director in the very first episode, The Killings at Badger’s Drift was based and the deadly biscuits in the hundredth episode, The Killings in Copenhagen were manufactured. Walkers can pause in Old Amersham to visit any of the town’s array of pubs and cafes and Amersham Museum or continue uphill to Amersham station for a return to Great Missenden.

Additional information

There will be a brief refreshment stop in Little Missenden and the walk will end at lunchtime in Amersham which has many cafes and pubs.

There is one awkward stile on a steep hill and some gates with deliberately narrowed opening.
