Activity

A linear walk of 13.5 miles, starting from Tring station and finishing at Cheddington station, which is the next station along from Tring. The walk is mainly flat with a gentle gradient toward the last third. There is a variety of terrain, initially we follow the canal then we are into open country and toward the end there is a wooded section. Boots and rain jacket advised.

Refreshments

Please bring a packed lunch, there is a pub toward the end for a possible drink
