Kimpton - Codicote Bottom - Ayot St Lawrence - Kimpton

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk. Join or log in above if you are already a member. Access is available to Walkingworld subscribers or you can buy the walk individually for £1.95 once you are logged in.

The route is mainly on footpaths and farm tracks with a little road-walking. There are some fine views across the Chilterns. Many farmland birds can be seen and sometimes kingfishers can be spotted along the Mimram. In the winter months and after a period of heavy rain, some of the paths can become muddy and boots would be recommended. 

Pub food and snacks are available in Kimpton (White Horse and Boot pubs) and Ayot St Lawrence (The Brocket Arms); a telephone call beforehand is recommended.

We would like to thank Les for this really enjoyable walk which uses some beautiful paths and has many pleasing views. Lots of historical interest too. Probably best to avoid Sundays however, as the cacophony from the Codicote Bottom clay target club (WP13) could be heard for most of the walk. Also, Ayot St Lawrence was very busy. We'll definitely choose a weekday next time. Sadly The White Horse at Kimpton is no more, but The Boot is open everyday for a post-walk pint.

A pleasant walk. I especially enjoyed the minor detour to George Bernard Shaw's house, even though it is shut in winter. Note the kissing gate at WP15 is no longer metal but good ol' rustic wood and no longer overgrown. Think it's had a makeover!

My daughter and I walked this one on 24th October 2011 with our dogs in very dry conditions. It is a very pleasant walk with the bonus of arriving at the Brocket Arms two thirds of the way through. Recommended.

Hi All, Another cracking walk enjoyed by Jill and I. The Brocket Arms pub in Ayot St Lawrence was very welcome at midday. On a general note most of the stiles referred to in the walk appear to have been updated to kissing gates. All the best John Marsh
