Cicerone - Walking In The Chilterns
The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty heads north-east from the River Thames at Goring through Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. Combining great views, rolling hills, beechwoods, riverside walks and pretty villages with easy access from London, it’s a popular destination for walkers.
This 833-square kilometre area of southern England is criss-crossed by 2000 kilometres of straightforward, well-defined footpaths and bridleways, and the walks in this guide use many of them to offer excellent walking for most ages and abilities.
The walks take in many points of interest including Iron Age forts, picturesque villages of thatched-roof cottages and cosy pubs, stately homes, colourful gardens, medieval churches and market towns. The walks wander on dappled forest tracks, over high escarpments, through valleys and along tranquil rivers with no significant difficulties for walkers of all abilities.
This guide describes a varied collection of day walks, from 4 to 12 miles long, right across this much-loved area.
