Wendover Circular with Coombe Hill Ending

t=2.1

Length: 19km (12m)
Toughness: 7 / 10
Transport: Take the 9:27 train from London Marylebone arriving at Wendover at 10:15. Return trains at xx:26 and xx:56.

Autumn - Chilterns, two words which go together like apple pie and custard or onion cake and Federweisser (young wine). So here is a classic with hopefully some early autumn colours. The walk features a nice lunch pub, a view from the top of Whitecross, a prehistoric fort and the spectacular Chilterns escarpment. The end is rounded off with a climb up to Coombe Hill with wide views towards the north and west, before descending gently into Wendover for tea or hot chocolate at Rumsey's (until 18:00) or some drink at the Shoulder of Mutton.
