This is a day long, linear walk of 10 miles. We start by taking the bus along part of the old stagecoach route which is now the A40, getting off at the one time coaching stop of Stokenchurch, perched on the top of the chalk escarpment. We will then walk back along field paths and country lanes, ridge and vale, gradually descending down the chalk dip slope to our starting point of High Wycombe.
Participants need to bring a packed lunch and enough fluids for the day. Clothing and footware need to be suitable for a day's walk in unpredictable English weather.
There are public toilets in at the start in the bus station and at two further (5 mile and 8 mile ) points along the 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!
