This walk takes level footpaths before climbing up to the fifteenth century Ellesborough church. After this we head into the Chilterns, in particular ascending Coombe Hill to take advantage of the extensive views from the monument dedicated to the Buckinghamshire men who died during the second Boer War. We then follow the Ridgeway to Buckmoorend where we will have lunch at the Farm Shop café. The return route passes Chequers, Great Kimble warren and hopefully a delightful tree in blossom!
There will be a 'banana' break mid morning and for lunch, please either bring a picnic or buy food to eat in the recently opened Buckmoorend Farm Shop Kitchen (seating outdoors). There are no toilets en-route.
Complete Outdoors are our primary sponsors for 2018 & 2019. At their Bourne End (Herts) shop, you will discover all of the equipment, clothing and accessories you need to launch your next expedition into the great outdoors - whether a day's hike close to home, or an assault on the Matterhorn.
Could this be you? We are seeking additional sponsors to enable the festival to continue going from strength to strength - get in touch with AWeiss@chilternsaonb.org if you'd like to know more!
