This circular walk of about four and a half miles taking a couple of hours at a leisurely pace, excluding pub stops, starts just to the West of Old Amersham. There is limited car parking in the road leading to the Shardeloes gateway entrance from the roundabout on the A413. Map reference O.S. SU 947978.
The direction taken around this walk is based on it being better to start with the uphill section climbing out of the valley while still fresh. A gentle walk follows this across the top, then back down into the valley for refreshments. Suitably fortified there is then a gentle meander along the valley back to the start point.
