West Wycombe village sits at the meeting of several valleys cutting into the Chiltern Hills, with the valley bottoms separated by ridges. This terrain was mainly formed during the last Ice Age when meltwater deeply eroded the frozen, tilted chalk surface. During the walk you will see how the Ice Age has left its imprint on the landscape and on human settlement and activity.

This circular walk will take us northwest of West Wycombe to some beautiful countryside and woodland with far-reaching views. Back on West Wycombe Hill, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the amazing views over West Wycombe and the Dashwood Mausoleum before heading downhill and passing the HellFire Caves.

If you fancy visiting the HellFire Caves, Groupon has a 2 for 1 offer here.
