Walk - Ibstone - Northend - Turville - 8 Miles

A lovely walk with many fine, far-reaching views over open countryside, it passes through delightful beech woodland and the Chiltern village of Turville, which is the setting for "The Vicar of Dibley" and the local windmill was a location for "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang". The route also allows for frequent sightings of red kites. We meet in Ibstone at a junction near the school. Ignore the Grey's Lane reference on the address as that is just to get it through meetup validation. Additional notes for the location from the walk notes:
"Leave the M40 at Junction 5 and turn in the opposite direction for Stokenchurch (right if coming from Oxford). Follow signpost for Ibstone. After approximately 2.5 miles look out for a junior school on left. Immediately after, turn right on to single-track road. Park thoughtfully on roadside opposite houses".
The area is shown better in the Map link.

We depart at 10AM sharp.

For lunch afterwards, we will going to The Royal Oak in Stokenchurch (The Fox Country Inn is out of our price bracket!).

Walking World grading: Moderate
Estimated walk end time: 14:00PM

We would welcome a donation of around 50p towards ongoing overhead costs associated with the Meetup service.

    Caught the best part of the day and able to ditch the jacket. Quite a hilly walk but rewarded with great views and picture perfect chiltern villages. Hope Berkley the dog is not too traumatised!

    Apparantly this passes through the village where the Vicar of Dibly was filmed.... I don't know why Derek didn't mention this in his description.
