Welcome to the Chilterns. The area is blessed with gentle rolling hills, beechwoods and picturesque villages. There is an extensive network of paths, which are generally well maintained. The walks, which follow this introduction, give some idea of what is available; with the aid of maps you can either follow the suggested route or vary it to suit your needs.
If what you see on this site appeals to you the first step is to obtain a paper map.The best choices are Ordnance Survey Explorer series (orange covers) and the Chiltern Society footpath maps. The Society’s concentrate on the needs of walkers and show paths more prominently than roads. They also show permissive paths, pubs and Anglican churches by name. Car parks are also shown. Chiltern Society maps are available from the Society office, phone number 01494 771250 and from various shops including Fox’s of Amersham and Chapter One Booksellers of Chesham. Ordnance Survey maps are generally available at bookshops.
