It’s taken me too long to write up this walk…we’ve been very busy in between. When Santa visits on Christmas Eve, carrying a crowbar, there’s a bit of tidying up to be done. Happy Christmas! The experience did serve to re-enforce all my prejudices about insurance companies!
This was a dull Sunday afternoon walk and would be so much better on a warm summer’s afternoon. I love this part of the Chilterns and although the ‘stripped back’ appeal of the Winter months makes a change, even now I’m looking forward to Spring. Highlights of this walk? The sleepy villages of Fingest and Skirmett, the view back over Fingest from Fingest Wood ( a classic Chiltern view) and tea at The Barn, Turville Heath. Our advice, save this 8.6 mile walk for Spring or Summer.
