The countryside between Quainton and North Marston is a delight. The villages have beautiful old cottages in many styles and usually with colourful, well-tended gardens. The hills, especially Conduit, Quainton and Simber, give gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside.

Walking is good although the footpaths are not always clearly visible. Much is through pastureland with dairy cattle and sheep predominating. A few of the fields are cultivated, but green is the main colour by far. There are almost no woods, so the views are never blocked by trees. This part of Buckinghamshire shows the English countryside at its best and provides a magnificent landscape for walking.

For refreshments, Quainton has The George and Dragon on the east side of The Green and halfway round is North Marston with The Bell in the main street. Both serve meals. This walk could begin and end at The Bell in Marston. All you do is park there and with your back to the pub, turn right and walk along the road to the next junction, which is Waymark 9 and continue.

In Quainton there is a fantastic railway museum and real working trains on real track. For further information see www.bucksrailcentre.org. Also for more about Quainton itself and the windmill see www.quainton.net.

Please note this walk has many stiles which are not dog-friendly.

We walked this on 20/11/10. The Bell has now been refurbished and is open called The Pilgrim. This was the most unfriendly dog walk I have ever been on. There were a huge amount of stiles and we lost count of the number that two dalmatians had to be lifted over plus two padlocked gates. Natalie Jones
