Burnham Beeches is an outstanding area of beech-woods, famous for its gnarled old trees. It is deservedly popular with walkers as it is a joy at all times of year. In winter the shapes of the trees can be best appreciated, the fresh greens of spring hold the promise of the joys to come as the woods fill with birdsong and in summer, the sun brings out the scents before the glorious display of autumn.

This walk explores the quieter, northern part of Burnham Beeches including Egypt Wood, so called because gypsies used to camp there. The walk also visits Littleworth Common, which is more open, then passes a 12th Century homestead called Hardicanute's Moat as well as a couple of pubs, so there is plenty of interest on the way.

Did this walk early December 2020. A lovely walk indeed but, like many woodland walks, parts are very muddy in the winter so be prepared!
