Sunday Walk 1 – A Chilterns Mystery Tour

Extra Walk 223 Henley circular via Turville

24km (15m); toughness 4/10

Trains: London Paddington 09.32 (Ealing Broadway 09.40) to Twyford 10.18. Then Twyford 10.43 to Henley 10.55

Return trains from Henley to Twyford to connect with trains back to London are at  xx:01

This “Midsomers Murders” walk had its first outing last summer and we had no reports of any “losses”! It traverses lovely open countryside before lunch and woodland tracks in the afternoon, and visits some beautiful hamlets and villages. (If you have the energy when you reach Turville you can climb a path to a windmill at the top of a hill and enjoy stupendous views   of the village and surrounding countryside).

It’s a long walk but not overly strenuous and you can shorten the walk by taking one of the bus options at the start or end of the walk. (See walk options).

As this is a bank holiday Sunday this walk has a number of pub and lunch options but you must ring beforehand as they are all popular and bound to be busy if the weather is warm and sunny.

Further information about the walk with all the pub lunch and other refreshment options plus full walk instructions can be found here.
