Hawridge

13th May

Hawridge & Cholesbury Cricket records suggest a certain Sarfraz Narwaz plays for the local cricket team! Judging by the recorded scores this is not the swash-buckling former Pakistan captain…although to be fair, he’d be quite old now…so who knows!

Anyway, we’re back for a Saturday afternoon walk around the shallow valleys near Chesham. Most of our walk is along wooded bridleways and this is probably the first time this year it’s felt like Spring has arrived fully. Two hundred years ago the beech woods around here provided the base material for a burgeoning chair-making industry in High Wycombe.  Today they just provide the backdrop to a not-too strenuous afternoon walk. There are few views but a couple of stiff climbs have us blowing by the time we reach the top. These valleys are secluded and the area has an intimate feel.  The highlight? The idyllic view along Pendor Bottom, Chartridge, capturing the the ‘tucked away’ feeling of this part of the Chilterns.

This would be a great place for a former Pakistan captain to while away his retirement…maybe, just maybe…
