Description

Just a simple change to the start of the route to avoid a steep stepped bridge over the railway. Crossing the railway takes the user on to a public footpath sooner but it's still through the town so not worth the climb

I walked from Chorleywood to Amersham. A lovely route, very easy to follow. The paths are generally easy underfoot though there are a few tree roots and muddy patches to be aware of. Just outside of the wooded areas there are brilliant views over the Chess Valley.

A very fine walk from Buckinghamshire into Hertfordshire, with each terminus well served by trains to and from London. Some wonderful views across the Chess Valley on emerging from Amersham at Quill Hall.

A navigational point - the left turn at Market Reading Wood is the path inside the fence, not the much more obvious path outside the fence. Realised this while halfway down the hill on the wrong side!.

Starting and ending with walks through pleasant residential areas to railway stations on the Chiltern Railways line between London Marylebone and Aylesbury (and the Metropolitan line into central London), this route takes you through countryside and woodland. The woodland paths can be well-worn with exposed tree routes in places and will be muddy when wet but are not technically challenging and there are no long climbs.
