Two more favourite walks revisited

At the moment I am repeating some of my favourite walks here in the Chilterns. On Wednesday (18th March 2009) I repeated a walk from Coombe Hill, visiting Whiteleaf Hill, Great Hampden and Little Hampden – it’s a walk I’ve described here several times before, and which forms Walk 12 of my Chiltern Chain Walk (see ). But I extended it slightly, by turning right just before I got back to Coombe Hill and following a descending path for about a mile almost to the edge of Wendover, before coming back on a parallel path over Bacombe Hill to Coombe Hill.

Today (Friday 20th March 2009) I did a 10 or 11 mile circular walk from Hambleden in the Buckinghamshire Chilterns. It was almost Walk 15 of my Chiltern Chain Walk (see ), done in the opposite direction, and shortened by going straight from Fingest to Turville (omitting Ibstone). I stopped at a couple of places near Turville for several minutes in the vain hope of getting some decent Red Kite photos, but the Kites were more distant and fewer in number than usual.

There are a few photos of both walks here on the ‘WildAboutBritain’ site:
