This walk passes through some typically enjoyable Chilterns scenery. The first half of the walk is dominated by small patches of beech woodland. The second part passes through the Hughenden Valley and estate, managed by the National Trust (www.nationaltrust.org.uk/hughenden).
There are a few road crossings, inevitable being this close to the capital and in the commuter heartland of the Home Counties. But beyond these, the walk is blissfully rural.
I found this walk in 'Walks in the Country near London' by Christopher Somerville. An essential purchase for any south-east car-free walkers.
One thing to note; if you are coming from London, the stations are on different lines. Ask at the ticket office for the cheapest travel option, and if there is a day return that allows you to travel back from High Wycombe. There are also buses between the two towns.
