The contributors' favourite Chilterns walk with an abundance of fine views, it encompasses the very best the Chilterns has to offer, from quiet country lanes, enchanting beech woodlands and tranquil churchyards (not to mention some fine hostelries!)

Take your time and enjoy every minute of this lovely walk, which we know you will want to do again and again. "...My eyes have looked across this valley and my heart has pounded at the beauty of it".

I just completed this walk a week ago at the height of the bluebell season and it was stunning. I would just like to make a couple of comments: Firstly there are very few of the stiles left as given in the instructions - they are now mainly gates and, secondly at 10, cross stile on metal gate into the wood and follow the path until it comes near to an open field on the left. Leave the wood and cross the field between two yellow signs.

One of our favourite walks. Wonderful scenery all the way. Today we started at Frieth and so arrived at Turville around lunchtime. Our reward was discovering a new eatery that has recently opened - The Barn at Turville Heath - serving freshly cooked soups and goulash as well as teas & coffees etc. Simple but tasty and all served with a smile. It is close to Turville Grange (see waypoint 25). Alan & Claire

Absolutely stunning. Fantastic views and good directions. The kites are in abundance throughout the whole walk along with wildlife everywhere. Some very interesting history throughout the walk and is well worth researching before you go as it enriches this walk tenfold. This one's a must!

Excellent walk around pretty villages, good scenery, gentle but varied terrain. A splendid 3 hours of fresh air.

Did this walk again on 01/01/2007 and cannot rate it highly enough. Beautiful views, a variety of types of terrain and copious bird life. The Chequers in Fingest, approximately halfway, does a fine pint too. If you have the chance, do this walk.

I did this walk on 27th November 2005. Absolutely stunning. The varying autumnal colours of the woodland through which the route passes were beautiful and the views truly spectacular. Quite muddy in a few places but not too bad overall. The quantity and variety of bird life was truly amazing - red kites everywhere (you'd think they were as numerous as sparrows!). At one point, about a mile from the end of the walk, we counted 27 red kites soaring above us and performing aerobatics in mock fights. An incredible sight.

Truly a delightful walk with ever changing views in this truly beatiful "hidden" valley. Lunch at "The Chequers" in Fingest recommended.
