On an outdoor English film set
15 people attending
6 places left
This is a circular walk from Lane End (to the west of High Wycombe). We will be taking in picturesque English meadows, country houses, deer parks, hills and woodland and visiting the quintessential Chiltern village of Turville (which is the filmset for the Vicar of Dibley), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and a variety of other TV shows and films.
This walk is relatively challenging. It is approximately 13 miles in length and very undulating with some steep inclines. Having said that, the views and scenery will make it a very worthwhile and rewarding day out.
The walk does not start at a railway station. There are limited public transport options. Please read the transport section below carefully (particularly regarding the return leg).

Hat or cap: stay warm in winter and shaded in summer
Sunglasses: for any sunny day, even in winter
Sun cream: can be useful even on cloudy and winter days
