To the west of Chesham are a number of parallel valleys which offer delightful views of the rolling Chiltern countryside. Along the valleys run tracks with curious names such as Herbert's Hole and Blind Lane and roads that on some days are almost devoid of traffic. This walk goes out on one such track and then cuts across the valleys, climbing to the top and then descending to the bottom. It returns through Chesham's back door, Lowndes Park. While crossing it the view of the town nestling in a hollow slowly comes into sight. The total length of the walk is eight miles, but it can be shortened in various places. En route there is the opportunity to see the remains of an Iron Age fort and to pass a house that was built in two parts, one either side of the road.

A pleasant, varied and well way-marked walk. The staff at the Bell at Chartridge were friendly and helpful and our walkers thought the food was good. On Sundays they offer traditional roast dinners although this isn't currently advertised on their web site. The pub is also dog-friendly in the bar. The Water Meadow car park in Chesham (free on Sundays) at way point 2 is a good starting point. The post code for the car park is HP5 1LF for those using a satnav.
