Hills and Woods of Buckinghamshire - Saturday 12 April

Join us as we head for the magnificent rolling landscape of Wendover in Buckinghamshire. With scenic hills and verdant woodlands, our route will take us along a picturesque valley cut through the Chilterns, passing by scenic stretches of water along the way. Then we will head towards the very edge of the range, where we will encounter glorious views of the Vale of Aylesbury stretching out towards the English Midlands.

Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the location of this trail has provided inspiration for some of the most extraordinary writers in the English language. Roald Dahl, author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, lived here, as did Robert Louis Stevenson, author of Treasure Island.

Upon our return in the evening, we will reward ourselves for the day's accomplishments, as we usually do, by stopping for food and drink in a local country pub.

Meet: Marylebone train Station - near information board. (It's a very small station, so it will be easy to spot the group. We will hold a 'Trailblazer' sign).

Meeting time: 10.15AM (for 10.42 train)

Price: £26 (includes transport and a full day guided hike)

Distance: 15 km/9 miles

Hike level: easy to medium

Estimated return to London: 9PM

Things to bring: hiking boots, waterproof clothing, water (at least 1 litre), packed lunch to eat at half way, money for end of day pub dinner, camera (if you want to take some pictures)

    This was an enjoyable day out and whilst it was our largest ever hike a few of you (thanks Louise, Judith!) did let us know that the group was just a bit too big. Numbers will therefore be lower in future.
