A moderate 9.5 miles / 15.3 km walk commencing from the foot of West Wycombe Hill, we start with an initial climb up a wooded path. We then follow the ridge, before descending into Bradenham with views across the valley. Proceeding across Naphill Common, pass the historic ‘Clumps’. The route takes us across fields, through Little Stocking Wood with scenic views, before stopping for lunch at the top of Hughenden Valley.
Descending through the wooded valley there is then an option to stop for tea and cake at Hughenden Valley Village Store and Coffee Shop. We will then proceed through the picturesque Hughenden Estate, with a second option of stopping at the tea rooms. The last leg takes us through Downley Common before a final ascent to the mausoleum at the top of West Wycombe Hill. An excellent photo opportunity with views across West Wycombe! There will be the option of a pub stop afterwards.
