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).
