It’s been a while since we’ve walked in the Chilterns but now, with summer jobs completed in Brighton, it was good to get back to walking near home. This walk is close to our Maryate (famous for nothing!) and Great Gaddesden (completed whilst the bluebells were still out) walks. Sunday afternoon was hot and the skies were azure blue. We started walking about noon, having parked up in the car park at the Crown and Sceptre pub in Briden’s Camp. One of us is a true law keeper and always finds this a stressful experience. Still, we appeased our consciences with the promise that we’d be back later for a coke.
This is a walk through fields with no stiles and very few hills, quite a contrast to our recent South Downs walks. However the fine weather and the signs of the changing seasons provided plenty to keep us going. A gentle walk of almost 8 miles. Ideal for a warm Sunday afternoon…back mid afternoon…and we left without buying a coke!
