Best walks over 9 miles

These walks should generally take most of the day. We walk quiet slowly, so you may complete some of them quicker than us.

Walk 1:
Chiltern Line, Great Missenden

Chiltern Line, Great Missenden

Great Missenden

A 10 mile walk through the Misbourne Valley. Enjoy the area before HS2 wrecks the peace and quiet. This is Roald Dahl country and the Red Pump Garage from Danny, The Champion of the World is a highlight of Great Missenden High Street.

 Walk 2:
Autumn-Sun,-Routs-Green,-Buckinghamshire

Autumn-Sun,-Routs-Green,-Buckinghamshire

Saunderton

This is a walk that you’re better off setting aside a whole day for, although there are plenty of opportunities to shorten it, particularly removing the loop from Radnage to Lodge Hill. There are some great views along Bledlow Ridge towards West Wycombe and Radnage and its ancient church, hidden away below Bledlow Ridge, are always worth visiting. The shorter autumn days make this 12 mile walk a bit of a rush for an afternoon …particularity if your legs are as short as ours.

 Walk 3:
The-View-from-Aston-Rowant

The-View-from-Aston-Rowant

Aston Rowant

A few hills on this walk and another walk that takes in the small village of Radnage…all our walks in this area seem to pass through here! Just outside the village there are some great views down the valley towards West Wycombe. I think they’re worth the walk on their own!

Walk 4:

Cholesbury Windmill

Cholesbury

Any walk that includes a windmill is a winner, in my opinion! We did this 10 mile walk in summer and some of the paths were rather overgrown. Don’t wear shorts-the nettles can be ferocious.

Walk 5:
West-Wycombe-Estate

West-Wycombe-Estate

Hughenden Manor

A 10 mile walk, starting from the Dashwood Mausoleum at West Wycombe. There are some steep hills but these are more than compensated for by the countryside. Bradenham is always worth a visit, as is Hughenden Manor. We could have stopped here longer…there’s lots to see.
