From the market town of Wendover we head south west on the Ridgeway National Trail and ascend Coombe Hill where we’ll hopefully be rewarded with good views. Skirting Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country residence, we continue along the Ridgeway through undulating woodland.
We then pass Grim’s Ditch and Little Hampden before descending to Great Missenden along the South Buckinghamshire Way.
