Activity

Dee is leading her first walk for the group. A 10 mile circular walk through the finest Chilterns countryside, starting and finishing in Great Missenden. The walk mainly follows paths across commons, woods and fields. Some paths are steep and can be muddy in places so wear good walking shoes. Route takes in several picturesque villages including Great Hampden, famous as the home of John Hampden, one of Cromwell's lieutenants. Great Missenden is one of the best preserved towns in the Chilterns, often the setting for Midsomer Murder episodes. It was also the home of Roald Dahl, and his museum is in the high street with its own tea shop as extra option after the walk.

Refreshments

We will stop at a pub in Great Hampden for lunch. Café at end.
