Hambleden circular walk no.4
Length: 14 km / 8.7 miles
Weather: Very hot.
This walk covers some familiar footpaths, as well as some new ones to me. It combines parts of other walks I have completed in the area.
The well in the village of Hambleden, where the walk starts.
After leaving the village, the walk takes you into Ridge Wood.
Looking up to Reservoir Hill.
Looking back to Ridge Wood.
Pallbach Hill, and the first white Chiltern arrow makes it's appearance.
The lovely Roundhouse, near to Fawley.
Two horses in a paddock at Lower Woodend Farm.
At this point I was feeling hot and bothered, also very hungry, so unfortunately the last thing on mind was a pint of beer. Once again, the lack of benches in the Chilterns was getting annoying.
At Luxters Farm I had noticed a light aircraft by the building, and it became apparent this cut strip was actually a runway.
Great Wood and Elm Down from across the other side, near to Flint Hall.
Partially obscured Skirmett sign -- made me smile, especially since the village pub is called The Frog.
My lunchtime bench, with Great Wood in the background
The Frog, where I sat and had a drink, outside in the shade.
From Skirmett, back to Hambleden, it is all on the flat. But today the sun was beating down and there was no breeze.
