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.
Lunch & Finish: Please bring a packed lunch and water for the walk. The walk will finish at about 4.30pm 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).
