A scenic High Wycombe walk covering some picturesque parks, fields and woods to as far as Penn.

Walk Description

Staring from High Wycombe train station this walk follows a route through the Rye, Deangarden Wood, Bloom Wood and King’s Wood, connected with fields and some urban areas and offering a number of views.

Some features on this walk include the Rye Park, the second largest park in the district and the site of a former Roman Villa; opposite the park are the ruins of the Hospital of St John the Baptist, which date back to the 12th Century.

The ancient woodland of King’s Wood which contains a wide range of flora and fauna and includes trees such as Sweet Chestnut, Corsican Pine and Douglas Fir is located towards the North East of the town and is also on the walk

A great deal of this walk uses sections of the Chilterns Way, which is a circular walking path around the Chilterns area of some 134 miles.

Lunch and Finish

Please bring a snackd lunch and water for the walk. The walk will finish at about 5.00pm and include a 30 min lunch stop, and pub 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).
