|About the Book|
The Chiltern Hills is a historical walking guidebook of eighteen circular walks between seven and ten miles.The Chiltern Hills are an area of hills northwest of London. These walks are confined to a small area north of Henley. Each walk has a map detailed with walk decription and is accompanied by much interesting local history notes. The walks pass through typical picturesque English villages, glorious countrysides with stunning views—England at its best. They pass by local village pubs, old churches, and village ponds. Country lanes, hills, valleys, woods, and streams are a feature in an area that has often been used in well-known films and TV series. Walks can be extended by combining more than one walk, or walks can be intersected at crossover points between walks. Some walks pass through nature reserves- others pass by the grounds of stately homes. The book is for the newcomer to walking as well as the experienced walker.
