South from Buckland Common

This circular walk passing through Chartridge and Cholesbury was the same as one I did about six weeks ago, but in the opposite (anti-clockwise) direction – the original walk is on my web site :-

The walk was about 12 miles and took four hours – slow going considering I didn’t take any photos at all. The reason for not taking photos was that it was grey, dampĀ and misty. I hoped the mist would clear, but if anything it got worse. It was foggy rather than misty at times. So it really ended up as a walk just for the sake of the exercise. Shame as there were some nice views over lovely countryside when I did it before.

The highlight of the walk was Cholesbury Camp – again I did the full circuit of this impressive Iron Age hill fort. The only wildlife I spotted in the very limited visibility was a Muntjac Deer – this was right at the end as I passed the Alpaca Farm at Buckland Common, where I also saw one last time.
