A series of walk leaflets produced by the Local History Group
A series of five leaflets describing walks around the four villages of the parish have been produced to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee and the 40th Anniversary of the Local History Group in 2002. Each one contains information about the local history, wildlife and landscape that you might encounter on the walk which is characteristic to this part of the Chilterns.
Most are relatively short walks which will take around 2 to 2.5 hours, suitable for both the keen walker and for families seeking to enjoy the area perhaps in conjunction with a drink or meal.
The first walk, Cholesbury Hillfort and Buckland Common, starts and finishes from the Full Moon pub and features Cholesbury Hill Fort.
The second walk, Hawridge Common and Heath End, starts and finishes at the Rose and Crown pub and features Hawridge Common.
The third walk, St Leonards and Grims Ditch, starts and finishes at the White Lion pub and features Grim’s Ditch.
The fourth walk, The Vale and Hawridge Mountain, starts at the Black Horse pub and features Hawridge Court.
The fifth walk, Dundridge and Braziers End, is actually two walks in one and has two starting points, the Full Moon and the White Lion, and features both the woodland and open countryside of Cholesbury and Dundridge.
The team of Shirley Blomfield, Charles Firth, David Barnard and Chris Brown who have compiled these walks have been supported by the “Parish Map Artists” whose illustrations have been used, and the landlords of all the pubs who have given permission for their car parks to be used by walkers.
You can download the leaflets here in two parts, the outside pages that give an overview of the walk and information about the locality, and the inside pages that show a detailed map and directions for the walk.
