29th April It's 7-30am on Sunday morning and we're blundering around Crawley Wood, trying to capture the early morning mist and the magical colours. We walk through The Coombe and out of the woods towards Gallows Hill. We said it yesterday but it bears repeating, on a good day the view would be great. A loop back across Ivinghoe Beacon, through the woods and we're back at the car before we know it, a short 3.4 mile walk.
28th April This is a walk of two halves. The first through a succession of Buckinghamshire Chiltern woods, Crowell Wood, Venus Woods, Sunley Wood and Chinnor Hill. The second part returns via Lodge Hill, the Bledlow Ridge valley and Radnage. On a better day the views would be great but alas, not today!
21st April We're back to Bix again...and the sump-busting, pot-holed, crawl along the lane to park at the Warburg Nature Reserve. We are determined to make the most of the sunny weather and this time, the walk doesn't disappoint. It's probably the shortest walk we've completed in quite some time but nevertheless really enjoyable! Walking … Continue reading Crocker End
3rd April We find a quiet road in English Bicknor (not hard, the whole village is a quiet as the grave) and set out across the fields towards Symonds Yat. The view from The Rock is spectacular and, if the weather was a touch better, we'd have been able to miles!
7th April Some walks don't live long in the memory and this will be one of those. They are enjoyable but most probably because getting out on a Saturday morning is always good and the conversation is enjoyable. Spring this year has been dull and today was no exception.
31st March Grey, dull, misty and wet! That sums up Easter 2018. In spite of the Chilterns walks we've covered during the last 2 years, by and large we've overlooked Chesham and its Buckinghamshire valleys. We start off along the Chartridge valley. The clouds are low today. So low in fact, that the hilltops are … Continue reading Chesham
30th March This was a Good Friday afternoon walk with Hannah & David, a real family affair! There are a limited number of times we'll be able to do this so they're moments to be savoured, irrespective of the weather...which, incidentally, was rubbish. That's enough introspection! Stokenchurch, Radnage and West Wycombe are becoming familiar sights … Continue reading Horsleys Green
