Walk length 10 miles/16km approx. Circular.

This is a lovely walk covering the Chiltern villages of Seer Green, Chalfont St Giles and Jordans.


We start off from Seer Green going across some great Chiltern countryside till we get to our mid point at Chalfont St Giles. The walk from Chalfont St Giles then takes us past Milton's cottage (John Milton famous poet notable for 'Paradise Lost').

The final leg of the walk takes us to our final village of Jordans, famous as a centre for the Quaker movement during the 17th Century. Two sights of interest are the Jordans Friends Meeting House and the Mayflower Barn (wood claimed to be from the Mayflower), which we will try to see.

At the end of the walk we will stop off at a local pub, probably The Jolly Cricketers which is a real ale pub about half a mile from Seer Green station.

Lunch and Finish

Please bring a packed lunch and water for the walk. The walk will finish at about 5.00pm and include a 30 min lunch stop, however the time may be earlier or later than this depending on the weather and pace (we have a relaxed pace which includes sightseeing and photography).

Meeting

Meet outside Seer Green and Jordans Station from 10.15am for the walk to start at 10:35am.

Meeting points

Car parking is available at the station car park at Seer Greens and Jordans (£3.50 for day).

Free Parking is available along School Lane opposite the school (please wait opposite the school, the walk passes this point).

Train: The 09.52 train from London Marylebone gets to Seer Green and Jordans for 10.31am. See Chiltern Railways

I would encourage you to seek other members who are driving, or take advantage of a group save on the train. See: Group Save Advice

Walking Safety

Walking is a great way to keep fit and generally very safe; however it does contain an element of risk. Before going on any of these walks you need to be reasonably fit and be prepared to be responsible for your own safety. You must wear appropriate clothing such as proper walking boots, warm and wet weather clothing and carry sufficient food and water and with winter light a small torch is also useful.

    I have only just joined the group and was rather surprised at the number of fall outs for tomorrow. Now I have to join that number too:-( I have been deluding myself all day that my knee will be fine, but the truth is, its not. I hope to meet you in the not too distant future, and very sorry that's not going to be tomorrow.

    Sunday. Any mist or fog should gradually clear through the morning. It will then be a fine and dry day with some good spells of sunshine. Feeling warm. http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/hp...­
