Wendover to Missenden (CURC joint walk)

Date: Saturday 20th May 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. Please note the later return time than usual, as we are travelling further from Oxford than most local walks. Meet: High Street bus stop L1 (corner of Turl St) Time: 8:20 (for 8:30 bus to Aylesbury) Return: Approx 8pm Distance: 19km Cost: Approx £15 (£12 with railcard/group ticket) Lunch: Please bring a packed lunch Leader: Alex Beckett (alexander.beckett@hertford.ox.ac.uk), Christopher Thomas (cthomas0@gmail.com)
