On the first half we cross the Thames at Hambleden Lock and follow the Thames Path east past the "African Head", Culham Court and Deer Park, Hurley Lock to Temple Lock, after which we head west through the Harleyford estate. On the second half we encounter a few Chiltern Hill beech woods and contours up through Rassler Wood and Pullinghills Wood (where there are the First World War Training Trenches) continuing through Homefield and Heath Woods before encountering the steepest hill of the day DOWN to Hambleden. About 2 or 3 hills. Brisk pace (about 3 mph). Please bring a packed lunch. Refreshments afterwards at the Stag and Huntsman.
Chilterns Weekend Walkers is one of the fastest growing walking groups affiliated to the Ramblers Association. They offer regular weekend walks together with an active social calendar. Gerry Paine and Steve Dowling will be leading the walk.
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!
