Our Groups are up and running with their activities. From the 1st of May we will no longer require advanced booking for most events. Events may still require advanced booking if it is necessary to place a limit on the number of attendees based on the event's risk assessment, or other factors.
This will be a full day 16 mile circular 'endurance' challenge.
******Final recce completed and walk adjusted due to HS2 closing of footpaths.*****
The Chiltern Hills were designated as an AONB in 1965. They are rich in wildlife, ranging from red kites to Duke of Burgundy butterflies. Habitats include endangered chalk grassland, farmland and many acres of woodlands (dominated by beech trees.) Some magnificent vistas of the Vale of Aylesbury and several incredible properties including the our PM country estate "Chequers."
