Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Firstly - this route is not suitable for anything with wheels. There are frequent stiles, and significant parts are across fields, rather than around the edges of them, and the ground is consequently quite soft.

Walking in either direction, the route is undulating. Brill is a local high point, so there are plenty of views to be had at that end. It passes through both arable and livestock farmland, and at one point, a slightly incongruous industrial estate. The path is well marked with red tarmac or bricks through this area.

The loop through the village of Long Crendon takes you past shops, and gives access to buses if you are starting or ending here (check times!). The High Street is also quite picturesque, but if none of those things appeal you can cut across the neck of the loop past the church.

Overall, an enjoyable 9 mile walk.

Large parts of the route are pretty straight, and go across fields, so there aren't too many tricky turns. But there are a few:

Tricky turns - Brill to Thame

1. After leaving Chilton via Chapel Lane, take the path through the gate. Continue with the hedge on your left. When you get to a gate with roundels indicating that paths go both straight and right, take the one to your right.
2. After crossing the Chilton-Chearsley road, the route skirts round Wombwell Farm. It rises and the field you are in narrows. The farmer has erected quite a few terse signs saying 'No Footpath', but these are correct; head to the corner with a stile and cross it. The signs, some saying 'Footpath' with arrows, steer you through the farm buildings.

Tricky turns - Thame to Brill

1. Leaving Long Crendon northwards, the path entrance is between a gap in the hedge, and isn't easy to spot until you're on top of it.
2. The path after you leave the road at Chilton heads northwestward. Chiltonpark Farm perches on the next hill and you'll pass right by it; this is a useful landmark.
