Activity

8 mile relaxing circular walk within the Chiltern Hills around the picturesque village of Little Chalfont. There will be lots of ups and downs and muddy patches at times so bring suitable footwear. Little Chalfont is steeped in history such as Beel House which is a Grade II listed 16th-century house on the edge of the village. Originally owned by the Duke of Buckingham, it was the home of Mary Pennington, whose daughter Gulielma Springett married William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania. Little Chalfont Nature Park is a 4.6 acre nature park with rare MG5 grassland / wildflower meadow and semi-natural woodland. It was purchased for and by the community and opened on 1 June 2016. It is freely open to visitors all year round from dawn until dusk. As Martina and her son are avid Geocachers they will be incorprating this on the walk around. They will start and finish at the station entrance.

Refreshments

There is a café at the start of the walk where we can grab a coffee to go and Martina aims to be at the pub by 2-3pm for lunch near the end of the walk, or you can bring your own lunch. We always bring plenty of fluids and snacks to have on the way round.
