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.
