Walk length 10 miles/16km approx. Circular.

A scenic walk from High Wycombe to Little Marlow and the Thames, taking in some varied Chiltern countryside from woods to nature reserves and rivers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This walk takes in the pretty ancient common of 'The Rye'. We then trek off into the country across breath-taking views and cosy woodland towards the small village of Little Marlow. From Little Marlow we enture to the River Thames, a short walk from the ‘Kings Head’ Pub.

The walk also takes in a circuit of the Spade Oak nature reserve, a former gravel pit and now an important nature reserve with a variety of water birds.

The route back takes us across more enchanting woodland past the Daws Hill Air Station and then finally back to the Rye.

    Hi. I'd love to attend. I adore Bucks and Marlow is one of the most amazing places. However, I need a lift. I'm based in WGC, Welwyn Garden (Herts), and would like to avoid travelling all the way to London only to come out again. I will of course pay for petrol. Thanks.
