Lane End and Stupas

Walk length 11 miles/17.7 km approx. Circular.

A quirky and interesting walk exploring the picturesque Chiltern countryside close to Lane end with a stop at some Buddhist Stupas.

Walk Description

The walk starts from Lane End before visiting a number of local woods including Shillingridge Wood and Moor Wood and the village of Marlow Bottom. Close to High Heavens Wood is the site of a number of Buddhist Stupas.

Some of this walk follows part of the Chiltern Way, a modern trail following the length of the Chilterns and stretching for 134 miles.

Lunch and Finish

Please bring a packed lunch and water for the walk. The walk will finish at about 4.00pm and include a snack 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 at Lane End Village Hall from 10.15am for the walk to start at 10:30am.

Car: Lane End Parish Council car park, Lane End, HP14 3ER (opposite Lane End Village Hall, see photo and map below).

There is no public transport for this walk, I would encourage you to seek other members who are driving.

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.
