SUN 17 March: Saunderton to Princes Risborough; 7 miles

A moderately hilly walk through Buckinghamshire farmland and woodland. There is one steep descent in woods around the 5 mile mark; if at all muddy, this will need some care.  We will stop for lunch after four miles at the Hampden Arms, Great Hampden.

The walk, including the meal stop, should take around five hours. You can download a map and elevation profile here.

You can also look at a map and aerial photograph side by side at the brilliant Where's the path? site, though the route is not marked on that.

Meet either at Saunderton station at 0949, or on the 0853 Aylesbury train from platform 1* at Marylebone. This train can also be caught at Wembley Stadium (0902) Northolt Park (0907) South Ruislip (0915) and West Ruislip (0918).   If travelling by train, buy a cheap day return ticket to Princes Risborough, which is the farther station from London.

If you are planning to come on this walk, please click on this Doodle poll link to let us know - this will not be taken as a binding commitment, but does help by letting us know roughly how many people to expect (and where to expect them). 

For more information about this or any other PFA walk, phone me on 07904 286774, or email me at secretary@pfalondon.org
