Maps

OS Landranger Map 165, Explorer Map 181.

Overview

This is pleasant undulating walk in the Chilterns taking the direct route to Combe Hill from Chequers described in Section 30, (when you have completed this section jump to section 44)
You may shorten the walk further to 7.8 miles by not detouring to The Swan pub at Smokey Row and instead opting for lunch at the Plough. 
However this walk is posted for those who prefer a more leisurely pace and I would recommend you choose the Swan Pub.
In the afternoon, the walk passes Chequers bristling with cameras before heading to Combe hill and the Boer War Monument there.  The final leg is a gentle decent into Wendover

Lunch

The preferred lunch stop is The Swan at Smokey Row t: 01844 275288, but as I mentioned you may also opt for the earlier pub, The Plough at Cadsden t: 01844 343302

Tea

Plenty of options in Wendover with Rumsey's Chocolaterie for tea and yummy chocolate delights or The Red Lion Hotel or the Shoulder of Mutton Pub (next to the station) for something stronger
