This is a walk into history; whether it is ancient history with an Iron Age fort or a reminder of a more modern conflict, a Second World War airfield where USAF bombers took off on their bombing raids. In your imagination you might see Ancient Britons defending their homesteads or watch personalities such as Clark Gable, James Stewart and Glen Miller or the wife of the President, Eleanor Roosevelt, encouraging the airmen. The airfield is on the Bucks - Herts border and the walk explores that patchwork of farmland, woods and hidden corners of this part of the county. The walk is nine miles (15km) but there is the opportunity to rest and be refreshed at a number of pubs on the way.

Good walk thanks with some lovely woods and stands of trees between fields. The ground was dry in good weather in mid-April, so no need for heavy boots. The walk is designed to be public-transport friendly, so if you're doing it by car you might like to start at point 6, then cut back from point 23 to leave out the parts through Chesham itself.
