Frankly, who cares about American elections or Brexit? There are more interesting things to do on a Saturday morning! There’s been a town at Tring for well over 2,000 years and happily this is a part of the Chilterns where Trump or Farage seem a world away.
We park near the Tring Natural History Museum and cross Tring Park before climbing up onto the Icknield Way. This is the only steep climb of the walk, thereafter we walk along the Ridgeway Trail as far as Wendover Woods and the handily placed Cafe in the Woods. It’s been a couple of weeks since we were last on the Chilterns and Autumn has turned brown, yellow & gold in the meantime. We catch glimpsed views through the trees across the Vale of Aylesbury, although the dull weather limits visibility. The leaves are falling fast and this will probably be the last chance to view the autumn colours before next week’s cold weather strips the trees. Today we’re not being tracked by Fitbit but there’s nothing here that would excite the ‘spy-in-the-cab’ as the walk back to Tring is similarly flat, until the descent back into the town. 7.7 miles, 2hrs, 40mins and we’re back home for lunch.
