Walk Report

Eastern Chiltern Fringes, Saturday 6th October 2018
3 walkers, 18 miles - leader Jerome Ripp
The Chess valley from Rickmansworth to Chenies with gloomy darkening skies overhead; the Chiltern Way south to Chalfont St. Giles with light rain as accompaniment; a record 5 minute lunch stop in the churchyard; the South Bucks way with persistent heavy rain to Chalfont St. Peter and via a vast number of lakes, the Grand Union Canal back to Rickmansworth now so wet that we no longer noticed the rain. However we made it back by 3 p.m. and my fellow stalwarts did say that that they had enjoyed the walk.
