A flat, open walk with just one steep climb in the final stages, with two excellent pubs - one of which, The Pink & Lily at the start point, was a favourite haunt of Rupert Brooke. Allow two hours at a steady pace, or a little bit extra if walking in the summer months and you intend to visit the windmill at Lacey Green or the ever-popular Whip Inn next door.

Just did the walk. A couple of corrections - the layby is down Lily Bottom Lane (turn down next to the pub) In addition, someone has dealt with the problem of getting dogs over the stiles (dog gate installed) - photo available

Just completed this very scenic walk on a June Sunday. The Pink and Lily pub is now open again for business, but there is no lay-by as stated on the approach.

This is a great walk (unless you have a dog - see separate comment) with fabulous panoramic views of the vale of Aylesbury. Please note though: 1. The Pink & Lily is currently closed down (just in case you were relying on it to rehydrate!) 2. At Point 4, when you reach the corner of the hedge, the landscape has changed considerably. Once over the stile you will walk in between fields with post and rail fencing. Continue walking in the same direction, there are two tracks off to your right - ignore those, and about 200m from the stile you will come to the next stile on your right. Walk diagonaly across the field you have entered to a metal swing gate, go through and carry on straight ahead (you will be able to see the windmill easily now on your right)to another metal swing gate in the right hand corner of the field, once through carry on straight ahead to another stile and the main road.

This beautiful walk is marred by three stiles which are completely impassable to dogs. In all three cases the fencing is full stock fencing reinforced with barbed wire. The only option is to lift your dog over the stiles which stand at about 4'6" - so if you can't do that: don't go or leave your best friend at home.
