Sunday walk: Chilterns with history

Book 1 Walk 10, Beaconsfield Circular T=1.10
Length: 19.5km (12.1 miles) Toughness: 4/10

10:13 Aylesbury train from Marylebone arriving at Beaconsfield at 10:41.

Return trains are at xx:03, xx:36, and xx:42 (journey time 28 – 33 minutes).

Rolling wooded hills in Buckinghamshire are the main characteristic of this classic Chilterns walk that also encompasses two historical features – the cottage of the poet John Milton, and the hamlet of Jordans with its important Quaker links.

The walk can be shortened by 3.6km by diverting to Seer Green & Jordans station (return trains at xx:06) after passing through Jordans.
The recommended lunch stop is Merlin’s Cave in Chalfont St Giles (01494 875101). Other options are described in the walk notes.

You will need to take the current edition of TOCW Book 1 or download the Walk Directions.
