Amersham to Winchmore Hill

  • This location is shown only to members

Walk length 12 miles/19 km approx. Circular.

A walk exploring the scenic countryside south from the Chiltern town of Amersham across to Winchmore Hill.

Walk Description

Old town Amersham is very picturesque, with many buildings dating back to the 13th century and containing a number of old pubs and coaching inns.

The walk goes through a section of Penn Wood, one of the largest ancient woodlands in the Chilterns. This wood was until the middle of the 19th Century wood pasture common and is now managed by the Woodland Trust.

Lunch and Finish

Please bring a snack lunch and water for the walk. Our walks usually finish at about 4.30pm and include a 30 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

Meet at 10.45am at Amersham railway station for the walk to start at 11.00am.

Train: The 10.12am train from London Marylebone gets to Amersham for 10.47am. See: Chiltern Railways

I would encourage you to seek out other members who are driving from London, or who can go as part of a group save on the train.
