Walk length 7.6 miles (approx)

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



 

 

 

 

 

 



Jordans Friends Meeting House

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













The village Green at Chalfont St Giles.

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.

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.

    Oh!!! When I rsvp’d there were 3 spots left :( I’ll change my rsvp and take myself of the waiting list and do something else instead, perhaps a bit of retail therapy :). I’ll have to be quicker of the mark next time. Hope you all enjoy the walk.
