A great Chilterns walk.

Length: 9.8 miles (15.7km )  Difficulty 5/10

Tea: Cafe Twit or The Cross Keys. There is also at the junction of the High Street and Station Approach a Costa coffee shop. Next door to Costa is a recently opened cafe called Matildas

What are the chances of the trains running on time in morning & evening?
Anyone definitely going?

n=6 Enjoyable walk through the snow covered countryside. A log fire & friendly welcome at The Gate, but slow service given that it wasn't very busy. Tea at Matildas with the cake rated as excellent and again a friendly welcome, and only 4 minutes from the station. They are also licensed, but we all had tea.
