CLOSURE NOTICE: A footpath used for this walk is currently closed for public safety while housing construction takes place. This means the walking route is not passable. The footpath is due to re-open in Spring 2020. A circular pub walk from The White Horse in Beaconsfield, within the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. The White Horse is located on one of the main thoroughfares in the market town, the perfect spot to absorb the buzzing atmosphere after your walk. The walking route explores the surrounding area, enjoying a beautiful mixture of leafy streets, open fields, broadleaf woodlands and old parkland. There is plenty of interest along the way, with history and wildlife around every turn. The walk is relatively flat for the most part, with just a couple of steady climbs along the way. It follows a mixture of surfaced pavements and paths, plus unmade paths through fields and woodlands, with some stretches that get very muddy in winter and after periods of rain. There are a few road crossings to negotiate; most are within 30mph areas, but one crossing of the A355 is within the national speed limit zone and does need particular care. You will need to negotiate several gates and kissing gates (one of which is quite tight!) plus a couple of stiles (with generous fence gaps for dogs). You will cross one paddock that may be holding horses, but there is no farm livestock on route. One stretch of the walk crosses a golf course so please show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross and watch out for any stray flying golf balls. Allow 2 to 2.5 hours.
