Explore the Potential of The Chilterns (1604)
Start dateOctober 22 2022
This is a day long, linear walk of 13 miles which will illustrate the great potential The Chiltern Hills have to offer serious walkers or casual ramblers. We start by taking the Chiltern Line train from Princes Risborough to High Wycombe to then start the relaxed day’s walk back. We’ll head initially to Hughenden, the country estate of Benjamin Disraeli, Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister. Changing course to a north easterly direction we’ll walk through some lovely Chiltern scenery of pasture and woodland towards Bledlow before taking the final leg of the walk to Princes Risborough Station.
Children under the age of 17, accompanied by an adult, do not need to be booked on.
Participants will need the train fare from Princes Risborough to High Wycombe (£4.00).
Participants need to bring a packed lunch and enough fluids for the day. Clothing and footware need to be suitable for a day’s walk in unpredictable English weather.
There are public toilets at the start in Princes Risborough and High Wycombe train stations, but only opportunities offered by secluded bushes thereafter.
Terrain info: This is a day’s walk through a working countryside. It involves some steep slopes and stiles and the possibility of muddy and wet tracks. Participants need to be fit enough and prepared for English weather variations.
