The rolling landscape of East Buckinghamshire

Download Walk 194. Aylesbury Vale Parkway to Aylesbury

24.5km (15.2m); toughness 5/10. (There are options to shorten the walk)

Trains London Marylebone 10.12 arrives Aylesbury Vale Parkway 11.18. (For North Londoners who do not wish to travel back into London you can pick up this  train at Harrow on the Hill at  10.24)

Three return trains an hour from Aylesbury to London Marylebone at 05, 35 and 55 mins

Buy a day return to Aylesbury Vale Parkway.

This walk has an inauspicious start along an A road but soon meanders through some attractive countryside with fine views and visits a number of quiet hilltop villages. It ends with a stretch along the Grand Union Canal.

METROPOLITAN LINE: Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September, between 1100 and 1645 each day, no service between Chalfont & Latimer and Chesham. A replacement bus service operates between Amersham and Chesham.

So what, Anonymous? It's only the Chesham branch line which is affected, not the Chiltern trains via Amersham.

The Met line closure between Chalfont and Latimer and Chesham Stations(to allow the running of a steam train on the line) will not affect Met line trains running between Baker Street and Amersham or the Chiltern line service between Marylebone and Aylesbury. It will have no impact on those wishing to do this walk.

Bill and Sean- thanks for your clarification. Will be on this walk.

Five started, one scampered off ahead, one took it very easy and the remaining 3 had a lovely day in the sunshine.

Lunch was in the garden at The White Swan in Whitchurch.

Lots of bird life and pretty villages. The blackberries were still out in force so the girls were happy!
