31st March Grey, dull, misty and wet! That sums up Easter 2018. In spite of the Chilterns walks we've covered during the last 2 years, by and large we've overlooked Chesham and its Buckinghamshire valleys. We start off along the Chartridge valley.

This generates much conversation about what happened when we were here last and what time of year it was. Who'd have thought our lives were so … Continue reading Wendover Canal
You can over-think life and it's always good to get out and blow away the cobwebs. This walk is an easy stroll, the sort of walk where talking and thinking comfortably accompany walking but there are enough views to prevent self-absorption.
