Wendover hills and dales (1901)
Start date18th October 2023
This is an 8.5 mile walk with several steep climbs. Leaving from the Manor waste outside Budgens in Wendover we will go up Bacombe hill via the burial mound to Coombe Hill memorial, then back paths to St Mary’s church Wendover. Joining the Ridgeway to hog trough valley. Then through Wendover woods to the cairn marking the highest point in the chilterns and back down to Wendover via Boddington hill Iron age hill fort.
Bring a packed lunch and drinks. There is an opportunity to use the toilets at the Wendover woods cafe but this comes about two thirds of the way round.
There are several steep climbs. Some uneven surfaces on the Ridgeway and the back paths from Coombe hill can be muddy in wet weather.
This is a longish walk and may not be suitable for younger children.
