Chitty and Cheese - Truly Scrumptious! (2601)

Wednesday 27 Oct ~ 10:00 AM

We are delighted to bring you this walk in association with The Cheese Shed at Nettlebed Creamery!  Our 6-mile circular route takes us on a journey of discovery from The Green at Nettlebled, over the Common, to join the Chiltern Way through the Warburg Nature Reserve.  A climb up from Bix Bottom leads us on to Maidensgrove and Russell’s Water Common and a delightful pond with a special connection to the Creamery.  After a short break by the pond, we descend an old Holloway and take the path over Berrick Trench to Nettlebed Common to explore evidence of the old brickworks.  It is then time to walk on to The Cheese Shed for a well deserved ‘Truly Scrumptious’ cheese toastie!
