Plenty of hills and spectacular views, the walk will take you right through the Prime Minister’s country retreat of Chequers. Good old English footpaths, the authorities once tried unsuccessfully to divert the footpath outside of the Chequers estate.Show more

A circular walk close to the village of Monks Risborough in Buckinghamshire. The walk climbs into Pulpit Wood to visit the site of Pulpit Hillfort, before descending into the beautiful grasslands of Chequers Knap. Joining a section of The Ridgeway, you will enjoy beautiful views across the Chiltern Escarpment before returning through Grangelands nature reserve and Ninn Wood. The various woodlands are beautiful throughout the year, whilst the chalk grassland areas come alive in the spring and summer with wildflowers, orchids and butterflies. The walk includes many climbs and descents throughout, including a couple of steep sections. The paths can become very muddy after periods of rain and in winter, and some sections of the chalk surfaces can also become slippery. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus one stile (this has a built-in dog gate, and it can be avoided entirely by using a nearby kissing gate instead). You will cross one sheep pasture and you may come across conservation cattle grazing in the nature reserves at times. Most of the route is traffic-free, but there is one road crossing that needs care. Allow 1.5 hours. Show more

This circular walk includes two old railway lines, starting along one that has been converted into a leisure and sculpture trail, and crossing another that is still very much alive to the sound of steam trains on special days, thanks to the efforts of a restoration society. The first of these is the Phoenix Trail, which opened in 2002 and runs for five miles between Princes Risborough and Thame, with 30 artworks along the route, some of which are seen on this walk. The second is the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway, which runs most Sundays, some Saturdays and Bank Holidays. The walk also skirts the edge of the Chiltern Hills and passes through a couple of pretty Chiltern villages straddling the Bucks/Oxon border in Henton and Bledlow each of which has a pub. The terrain is relatively flat and easy, with metalled or solid track for over half the route, with some stiles and kissing gates in the latter stages. It is relatively long however. Allow 3 hours.Show more

This linear path follows the Ridgeway National Trail for most of its route, beginning in the heart of Princes Risborough and ending slightly above the town of Chinnor in Oxfordshire, although parking is available here if you are using two cars. The route takes you across undulating Chiltern countryside, past a golf course and includes one decent uphill pull before ending in an easy ridge-side section sandwiched with nature reserves. The route follows parts of the ancient Upper Icknield Way and offers great views over the Vale of Aylesbury from Lodge Hill. Allow between two and two and a half hours to complete, and bring your own refreshment as there's none on the way, although there are picnic tables near the end and a bench at the top of the hill.Show more
