A varied walk at the western edges of the Chilterns, with a couple of remote country pubs on the route. At Stoke Row you can also visit the unusual Maharajah's Well, donated to the village in 1864 by the Maharajah of Benares.

Walk reviewed and updated on a sunny spring day. New Photos added for WM 10 & 12. Where appropriate, references to stiles replaced by gates. There are a few muddy places but warmer weather and lack of rain meant this wasn't a problem.

I quite enjoyed this walk as it's so varied. A few nice views, fields, a bit of a climb and a clamber around some pronounced tree roots. I'd imagine parts of it could get quite muddy during the winter, but it was fine when I went. I would recommend going on a sunny day as there is quite a long stretch along a covered path which would provide some welcome shade on a hot day, but if it's very overcast it makes the path quite dark.

An enjoyable walk overall with plenty of shade on a hot day, but a few points to note are:- 1. Wellplace Zoo closed in September 2006. 2. The route between waypoints 11 and 12 along the side of the farmyard is narrow and overgrown with nettles. 3. The long stretch between waypoints 18 and 19 passes an unsightly scrap metal yard followed by a boggy bridleway.

At waypoint 9, the map indicator is incorrect. It should be pointing to Scott's farm north of it's present position.
