High Wycombe, The Rye and Little Marlow

  • Jan 13, 2013 · 10:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Walk length 10 miles (approx)

High Wycombe, is the largest town in South Buckinghamshire, and within easy reach of London. Once the centre of the UK furniture industry, it is now largely a commuter town to the capital.



This walk takes in the pretty ancient common of 'The Rye'. We then trek off into the country across breath-taking views and cosy woodland towards the small village of Little Marlow. From Little Marlow we can also venture to the River Thames, a short walk from the ‘Kings Head’ Pub.




The route back takes us across more enchanting woodland past the Daws Hill Air Station and then finally back to the Rye.







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, and mid 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).

Meeting: Walk to start at 10.30am from the Rye Lido Car Park.

1. By Train: Meet at High Wycombe Railway station for 10.09am. The 9.36am train from London Marylebone gets to High Wycombe for 10.09am (one of the organizers will walk you to the start point of the walk at the Rye Lido Car Park).
See: Chiltern Railways

2. By Car: Free parking on Sunday at Wycombe Rye Lido Car park. The Rye, off Bassetsbury Lane,
High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire,

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

    Fab walk with lovely people and friendly dogs. Sebastian enjoyed most of his ride and the Kings Head pint was welcome. I love the fact these meets help me discover local paths I didn't know about. What was the final distance, ascent and descent ?

      If you're curious I've finally weighed my backpack with Sebastian and it's 20kg.
