This walk is based on route 19 from Walking in the Chilterns by Cicerone, page 123. We did this walk last June, but this is the shorter version.Here is a link to the longer walk

We started at the entrance to the Shardeloes Estate, next to Amersham Cricket Club.

After passing the cricket pavillion we then walked across broad meadows following the South Bucks Way, in the River Misbourne valley.
