The Hike:

A 11.5 mile circuit passing through Brandenham Manor, Naphill common, National Trust Hughenden estate and Brandenham Beeches Woods.

The landscape is a classical Chiltern blend of hills topped with beech woodlands, and gently rolling valleys with a mixture of grazed and ploughed fields divided by hedgerows. The walk offers a verity of glimpses into the deep and varied history of this part of the Chilterns, ranging from ancient earthworks to war-time bunkers.

Brandenham Beech Woods
The path takes us through beech woods, in the late spring, this area is carpeted with bluebells.

Naphill Common
A large area of mixed oak and beech woodland with many paths. The Common is designated as a SSSI because of its many veteran trees and the remnants of heathland. It is one of the most natural woodlands in the Chilterns.

Naphill Common adjoins the Bradenham Estate and Downley Common, creating an extensive area of open access land.

Boots are recommended as some of the paths have significantly muddy sections.

You may see red kites soaring over the Beacon Hill area and beyond.
The Chilterns are one of a select number of places in the UK where red kites have been re-introduced.
