This is a day-long linear walk of 12 miles. Starting at Princes Risborough Station, we catch the Chiltern Line train, running below the Chalk Escarpment which rises to our left, to the market town of High Wycombe. As the train departs, we'll head northwards towards Four Ashes before entering the Hughenden Valley and meandering through the dip-slope Chiltern farming and woodland countryside, finally returning to Princes Risborough.
Those intrepid walkers who've joined previous High Wycombe - Princes Risborough walks should note we'll be taking a significantly different route from any used previously.
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 at the start in the train station, and after approximately 1 hour into the walk, but only opportunities offered by secluded bushes thereafter.
Stuart Fletcher lives on the edge of the Chiltern Hills. As a walk leader for over 30 years, he likes to roam through the beautiful landscapes they offer, pointing out interesting things to people.
