Walking in the Chilterns Cicerone Guidebook

Walking in the Chilterns Cicerone Guidebook

author: Steve Davison
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, beech woods, riverside walks, and pretty villages with hundreds of miles of paths and easy access from London, it's a popular destination for walkers.

This guide describes a varied collection of 35 contrasting day walks, from 4 to 12 miles long, right across this much-loved Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 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. Spring and early summer are best for wild flowers; in autumn the beech woods are clothed in golden-brown autumnal colours; a frosty winter's day gives impressive views. Also included is information on geology, history and famous local Chilterns characters brought to life throughout the route descriptions. Each walk has clear route-finding instructions plus full colour OS 1:50,000 mapping and there are numerous colour photographs throughout.
