A beautiful walk from the Natural History Museum at Tring, which houses the zoological collections of the 2nd Baron Rothschild, up to Tring Park through the beech woodland typical of the Chilterns, along the ancient Ridgeway then cutting across another beech wood to Cholesbury and one of the most visually impressive Iron Age camps in the Chilterns. Then you walk back along the ancient Grim's Ditch, thought to be an old stone age boundary or road and on through Wiggington back to Tring at the foot of the escarpment.

Dog friendly. Pub in Buckland Common (near point 7 of walk) has long been closed. Only pub on this walk is The Full Moon near point 9.

Very enjoyable walk but the highlight of this walk has to be the Naural History Museum at the start. It is fabulous and free. Go see. We had our picnic lunch in the Museum's picnic area but shortly after you are in the first woods there is a bench with marvellous views. In the middle there was a bit too much walking in woods for me to give the walk more than a 3 star but they are the very nice beech woods of ..the Chilterns.

Very enjoyable walk, although can be muddy in places. 2 points of clarification. At no 10 this should read "Bear right through the trees...". If you bear left you end up back at the ramparts. No 16 should simply say "Turn left at the crossroads down Vicarage Road. Continue round the right hand bend until you reach a footpath sign on the left directing you to Tring Park".

I did this walk on 4/11/06, and it is thoroughly enjoyable. The route covers a mix of woodland and open pasture and is mostly on country lanes, decent paths or grassy fields, so not too much Autumn mud. The instructions at points 16 and 17 are confusing - don't take the first left fork you come to off Vicarage Road (and still signposted "To the school"), it leads into a small housing estate. Walk past this left fork and follow the road round to the right to a second left fork, shown as point 17 on the map, and follow the written instructions for the second half of point 16 from there.
