There are a number of hills to ascend & descend and we will mostly be walking on country paths and through woods

Join us on this 10 mile walk taking in the delights of the Misbourne Valley in the Chiltern Hills ANOB (Area of outstanding natural beauty), Buckinghamshire.

We will start our walk in Great Missenden, famous for being the home to Roald Dahl.  Heading out of Missenden we head up hill through the village of Prestwood which dates back to the Middle Ages.

We then head across fields, skirting a number of woods passing Hampden House (previous home of the Earls of Buckinghamshire) before continuing along the Chiltern way, past Hampden Bottom.

Heading further into the Chiltern Hills we head up Cobblershill (post lunch stop), walking alongside Cockshoots wood, picking up the South Bucks Way.

Heading downhill we walk through Coneybank Wood, hopefully seeing carpets of bluebells before heading back into Great Missenden


Is it dog friendly?  Dogs are welcome but please note and abide by the Countryside Code ( and be prepared for a couple of stiles / hills on the walk. Please also remember not everyone loves dogs as much as you do so please be mindful of other members.
