Walk length 10 miles (approx).

This walk takes in the picturesque Chiltern countryside from the small town of Great Missenden to many surrounding villages such as Little Kingshill and Great Kingshill.

Great Missenden is a pretty place with many historic buildings. The George Inn which we will try to visit at the end of the walk is an old coaching inn dating back to the 14th Century. The town is also famous for being the home of the late Roald Dahl, the children’s writer.



Lunch & Finish:
Please bring a packed lunch and water for the walk. The walk will finish at about 4.15pm and include a 20 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).

Meeting and Transport:
Meet at the entrance to Great Missenden Station from 0945am for the walk to start at 10.00am

Car: Some of the council car parks are free on a Sunday, such as Buryfield Car Park, Link Road, HP16 9AE, a short walk from the railway station and the meeting point. There may also be some free street parking that is suitable (please check for any parking restrictions and allow sufficient time to park). See Chiltern District Council

Walking Safety: Walking is a great way to keep fit and generally very safe; however it does contain an element of risk. 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.

    I will be catching the train from Marylebone and I wondered if anyone else will be travelling from London so that we can organise a group saver ticket? I think we need a minimum of 3 people.
