Sunset Special: Monks Risborough to Wendover via Coombe Hill

Book 2: Walk 1 Monks Risborough to Wendover via Coombe Hill T=2.1

Train:   Take the 17:53 Aylesbury train from London Marylebone to Monks Risborough, arriving at 18:45.  Return trains from Wendover are at 21:26; 21:56 and 22:56. Buy a day return to Wendover.

Distance:  6 miles or 10 km for those more metrically minded.

Difficulty:  4 out of 10.

A couple of us did this walk as a short winter evening walk and it occurred to me that it would make a nice spring sunset walk with freshly sprouted beech leaves. With any luck, we should arrive at Coombe Hill for sunset with a gentle dusk decent to Wendover for a late dinner or nibbles at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub (next to the station). More details and instructions can be found here.

Fingers crossed for good conditions!

Just n=2 set off under w=cloudy-skies for a lovely evening walk through the fresh iridescent leaves of the beech trees along the way….Notwithstanding the clouds (and a light shower), we were treated to some nice sunset color on the western horizon and more significantly bumped into a w=badger on its evening promenade...We arrived at Coombe Hill for the sunset and made our way down to Wendover for a quick meal before catching the 21:56....A good evening walk to remember for this time next year....
