(D) Take the road out of Wendover Woods with the station on your right over the bypass and through the woods towards Butlers Cross.

(1) When above Butlers Cross take a sharp left up near the monument and across and down the hill to Buckmoorend.

(2) From there cross over the road and walk in front of Chequers crossing the main drive. Follow the path until you reach the woods and turn right along the path along the North side of Chequers grounds, through the gate and across the field. Go through another gate and continue along and up to a hillock where you can find a wonderful view of Bucka and over to Oxfordshire.

(3) Go back down the slope under a great climbing tree for children, through the gate and cross another path doing a dog leg into the next field. Go through the gate and walk down and over to the next set of gates into the nature reserve. Here you can see large white snails introduced to the area by the Romans (very old snails!). Hugging the right hand side of the field go down the hill and through the gate the gradual shortish path to the Cadsdean Road and turn left to The Plough at Cadsden. (A)
