This is a very similar walk to one I have completed before, with slight variations. It was the first time in a long while that I had done a walk in the Chilterns and it was good to be back, even if a section of it was very muddy!

Ibstone Common, near to where I started my walk.

This section of the walk was not too bad, but further on the path was extremely muddy, a bit like chocolate milkshake.

I did not take this path, but thought they were nice enough pictures.
