The Chilterns 40 Favourite Walks

The Chilterns 40 Favourite Walks

by: John and Annie Fergusson
With some of the most picturesque countryside in England, yet only a short hop from London, the Chiltern Hills are just waiting to be explored. The glorious views from the high ridges, ancient woodlands brimming with wildlife and downs alive with wildflowers and butterflies make the Chilterns and the communities within them English to the core.

The vast network of well-established paths provides wonderful walking country with history and nature keeping you company at every step. If you are planning to get away from it all in the Chilterns, this collection of 40 moderate walks is your perfect guide.

Each walk entry begins with at-a-glance details of distance, time, terrain, parking and public transport access where available.
