Midweek day walk - Tring Circular

Tring Circular - a Tube chaser challenge

The Chilterns: An open ridge walk to Ivinghoe Beacon, Ashridge forest, and a classic village pub for tea

Book 2 Walk 5

Length : 13 km or 8 miles

Toughness : 4 out of 10

Getting there : Catch the 10:24 am train from London Euston to Tring station or
  Catch the 9:39 am from Clapham Junction arriving at Tring 10:37 am

Meeting point : Tring Station at 10:59 am

Tickets : Buy a cheap day return to Tring

Brief Description

With the possibility of a Tube strike later on in the day, I've posted this as an extra walk (in addition to the Winchester Circular).  I would suggest walkers do the shorter version of this walk to arrive back in Euston in good time if the potential industrial action is confirmed. (In any event, there are good bus services from Euston) You may find full details of the walk here and a downloadable PDF here

Suggested Lunch stops

The Brownlow Café, a National Trust kiosk on the Ashridge Estate.

Suggested Tea stops

Possibility of a quick cuppa at The Greyhound at Albury if strike is on.

Planning to do this walk instead of the Winchester one because of potential tube strike tomorrow.

A shorter walk for those who may have had travel difficulties returning home from Waterloo after the tube strike started.
We skipped Ivinghoe Beacon and headed straight to Brownlows for a good value and tasty lunch. Fresh cream and strawberry scones were on offer and were yummy. Five returned to Tring via Albury, while the poster went off to explore routes around Ashridge College before slipping down through Frithsden woodland to Berkhampsted.
