Activity

A fine 10 mile circular walk taking in some spectacular Chilterns scenery. We start at the car park in Cowleaze Wood and head through the trees into open terrain and a trail through young woodland. We emerge, flanking the Wormsley Estate and will stop for packed lunch at a favourite viewpoint overlooking the surrounding hills. We make our way through the glorious beech trees of Shotridge Wood to Christmas Common where we can stop at the Fox and Hounds pub for some liquid refreshment. We will then wend our way around Watlington Hill with its mix of spectacular views, meadows and yew trees. As we descend the rather steep hill we join the Ridgeway for a while then leave it to make our way back through Shirburn Wood and up to the meadows and back where we started at Cowleaze Wood car park. There should be only one main hill to climb towards the end.

Event is restricted to 12 participants due to current government guidance. This is based on 2 separate groups of up to 6 participants each, the second group having an assistant leader and following the first group at a short distance. Please book your place using Book Now button below.
