A lovely walk with many fine, far-reaching views over open countryside, it passes through delightful beech woodland and the Chiltern village of Turville, which is the setting for The Vicar of Dibley. Frequent sightings of the red kite are likely between Waymarks 12 and 13.

This walk does full justice to this stunning area. For a shorter stroll, a fine 4 mile Ibstone-Turville circular can be made by turning left at WM2, heading south into Turville Wood, then east on the bridleway until it crosses a narrow lane, at which point you can turn right to climb the hill to Churchfield Wood and rejoin at WM21.

Great views (in places) but a little too much woodland to enjoy them. There are a few steep slopes so choose a dry day. Plenty of Red Kites adorn the Ibstone area and hills. Watch my video walk: jswalks.blogspot.co.uk

Agree with all previous comments, a lovely walk with fabulous views, particularly Red Kites, several excellent sightings from Wypt 6-12. Written instructions very precise and easy to follow. Several climbs (tiring if you/re not used to climbing). Bull & Butcher at Turville is good 'pit stop'. Date of walk 26/05/2012

Did this walk on 13/04/08. A beautiful route with fabulous scenery, good paths and a great variety of birds and other wildlife. Note, though, that although not too confusing, a number of the points referred to in the instructions have changed - new fences along fields enclosing the path in places, stiles replaced by gates etc. You won't get lost, but be aware.

Fantastic walk - great views - have a good breakfast before you as you'll be doing a fair amount of hill climbing. Also painted route signs in the woods were excellent - I never got lost. Few tweaks (6) There are swing gates on either side of the field and the Estate sign has gone. (28) The painted sign on the tree in the picture has faded and is easily missed. Instead look out for a post with a direction sign on it - you can't miss it.

Superb walk - very varied - we stopped at the Crown at Pishill for lunch and the red kites were spectacular throughout the walk but especially at Ibstone.
