Saturday First Walk Wendover Circular

TOCW2 2.1 Wendover Circular with "energetic ending via Coombe Hill"

This saturday seems to be plagued by engineering works, and trying to avoid mud, restricts the choice of walks. However this is a fine walk and will hopefully not have much mud. You do need the download instructions if you have a pre 2011 version of the book and if you want to do the Coombe Hill ending. T=2.1 For those not familiar with the walk, the Coombe Hill option avoids a final stretch across potentially muddy fields, and for those who like such things, there is a pub right by the station.

Length 11.5 miles, 7 out of 10

Travel Get the 0927 train from Marylebone (0939 from Harrow-on-the-Hill), arrives 1015. Return to Wendover. Return trains are xx28 and xx58.

Lunch The Red Lion (tel 01844 344476), Whiteleaf, near Princes Risborough HP27 0LL, 10km (6.2 miles) from the start of the standard walk,

10 on this walk including two first timers. We separated into two groups of five, the trailing group including two who were intending to take the short walk option. The remaining eight came together again at the lunchtime pub but became fragmented again after lunch, two trailing behind from the off, and two more going astray after briefly falling behind. A chill, overcast day with a brief spell of mizzle when we set off, balanced by an equally brief glimpse of blue sky soon afterwards. A few signs of spring here and there, though it didn't feel like it.
