Nuffield - Ipsden Heath - Groveridge Wood – Chiltern Way - Nuffield

This walk starts on the Ridgeway National Trail and heads south via some rolling hills to reach Ipsden Heath. After a short amount of walking on the Stoke Row to Nuffield road, the route heads north-east to English Farm, which is in fact a splendid-looking Georgian building. After carefully crossing the busy A4130, the route passes through Groveridge Wood and later the airy Park Wood. Later the walk passes by the HM Young Offender Institution before arriving at Hazel Wood.

The final part of the walk involves a leisurely walk down the famous Chiltern Way, before joining the Ridgeway National Trail to return (with a bit of climbing involved) to the start via the Huntercombe Golf Club.

A number of beautiful woodland sections make this an especially good autumn walk, and the variety of scenery was never less than pleasing. The directions are generally very good, although the passage of time has created the odd minor anomaly. At WM4 I found the diverted path a bit confusing and I ended up on the wrong side of the barbed-wire fence. Fortunately there was a handy stile back onto the path in the woods. I didn’t particularly fancy traversing the first field at WM6 as it was full of large horses, but it was easy to retrace my steps, turn right on to the rough track, right at the road and then right again down Whitcalls Lane to the crossing point. The field at WM7 was full of long-horned cattle, but again it was straightforward to continue past the farm gate up the hill, then left over the stile down a waymarked path to join up with the stile at the beginning of WM8.

Good for dogs as almost all is 'off lead' except on golf course and in livestock fields
