Wendover Circular to Speen, Saturday 21st November 2015
9 walkers, 18 miles - leader Charles O'Toole
A circular walk through the Chilterns from Wendover via Speen. Spotted guanacos en route and enjoyed pub lunch at the delightful Bryant's Bottom. Also saw the "woolly train deflectors" - colourful adornments to the trees along the proposed HS2 rail route through the area. See the photos for evidence!
