Two glorious villages stand out on this walk: Cuddington at the start point, with its various characterful thatched cottages and elegant pub in the centre (and start point to this walk, should you feel tempted), and Nether, or Lower Winchendon, which is similarly picturesque and boasts a Victorian circular stone postbox, perfectly positioned outside the church. In between, there are opportunities to sample and cross the small but peaceful River Thame on this circular four and a bit mile walk, for which you should allow around 90 minutes, excluding stops. As well as the river there are various brooks and springs, making for wet ground at times, so walking boots are a must at all times of the year. You will need to negotiate several gates, kissing gates and stiles along the way. Whilst most of the stiles have gaps or dog gates alongside, at least one has neither, so dogs may need a lift over. You will be sharing many of the pastures with cattle and sheep. There's a village store in Cuddington to stock up on snacks, but no other re-provisioning point on the walk itself.

A lovely, varied walk as described. It took us 1 hr 20 mins. There are several very muddy places around gates and stiles and an occasional very uneven, tussocky field so proper footwear is required. I can't comment on the written instructions because I just used the blue dot on the map which worked a treat!

Lovely walk and found instructions very easy to follow. However there was an issue on the part where you walk across the very soggy field go over a stile and turn right to a gate - it was padlocked so we had to climb over it.

Lovely walk. We found the instructions clear and informative, especially with the map. Looking forward to doing others .
