Getting There

A walk in the Buckinghamshire Chilterns which takes walkers on a circular route around Chequers Court, the Prime Minister's official country residence. Taking in a range of hills and valleys within the Chiltern's area of outstanding natural beauty the views are beautiful from many points. The walk also includes a section of the Ridgeway, said to be Britain's oldest road. The walk follows woodland and field paths which will be very muddy and slippery after wet weather. There are several fairly steep ascents and decents including a number of steps. The walk passes over six stiles (all of which have open fencing alongside for dogs to pass through) and a number of gates. Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.

The walk starts from the crossroads of Butler's Cross on Ellesborough Road between Wendover and Ellesborough, where there is some free parking. Ellesborough Road is accessed from the A4010 between Princes Risborough and Stoke Manderville. Approximate post code HP17 0TS.

Blue sky, sun and a gradually warming day. What more could one ask for.

Such a nice walk. Tough hills at the start, but worth it for the view. Good amount of challenge. Highly recommend

On a sunny day there are fantastic views across the Chilterns. The icing on the cake was seeing the Chequers Estate.

Fantastic! Only issue is a nasty bit of road walking on fast corners interesting walk. Views well worth the hike! Don’t go on a foggy or rainy day as you won’t get the benefit.

Beautiful, varied walk on a warm and sunny spring day with a mixture of exposed and secluded sections. Pretty steep in a couple of spots if you’re nursing an injury or struggle with hills.
