Walk Report

Winter Chiltern Hills, Saturday 9th February 2019
13 walkers, 17 miles – leader Jerome Ripp
The walk lived up to the title; a bracing cold windy winter's day with lots of morning sun and a gloomier afternoon; plenty of Chiltern hills with approximately 1200 feet of ascent. The route was a northern circuit from Great Missenden via the Hampdens, crossing the valley at Wendover Dean and lunch at the Old Swan, Lee Gate with a most welcome fire and hot drinks. The shorter afternoon section reached the most northerly point at Dundridge manor before heading south over Lee common and Ballinger common to catch the 16.32 train as there was only 1 train an hour. A few ploughed fields and some mud but mostly good woodland and field tracks with some fine views, and not a loop in sight today!
