West Wycombe - Wheeler End - Fingest - Cadmore End - West Wycombe

An undulating walk in the Chiltern Hills, with superb views, tranquil woods, pretty villages and three good hostelries. Members of the Hell-Fire Club used to meet in the church tower at West Wycombe or the caves beneath the church, which are open to the public.

Dogs are best kept on leads.

It’s worth noting that the West Wycombe car park is now charged for 7 days a week; you may find a space on the high street when it’s quiet. For a shorter alternative route of 6.7 miles, take the footpath right just after Huckenden Farm (midway between WM10 & WM11) and follow the well defined paths to meet up with the route again at WM23. The Brickmakers Arms at Wheeler End has long since closed.

This is a good walk but since the previous reviews some features such as stiles and gates have been removed making some of the directions unclear. We also got hopelessly lost at waypoint 8 and should have read the review below which corrected the direction!

Good walk to stretch those legs with a opportunity to visit Fingest and the Chequers Pub!

This is an excellent walk. The instructions are clear. We had no difficulty following them, except at waypoint 8 which should read "At track turn right then at main junction, turn left for few paces, then right into (Grid ref: 813932) field. Keep to right-hand field. The Fingest pub is a good stopping point close to the half way mark, but after a pint of the excellent Brakspear's Special you will feel the stiff climb out of the village. The only downside of this walk is the noise from light aircraft at weekends, and the constant noise from the M40 for much of the route.
