This section of the walk takes you from Wendover down to Buckmoor End (where there is a pit stop and possibly a bacon sarnie!) across in front of Chequers through the nature reserve and over to The Plough at Cadsden.
Calculated time is computed with the distance, the height difference, and an average speed of 2.2 mph. For an intermediate walker, this time includes small breaks.
(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)

This walk explores some of the hamlets of the Chilterns which, although close to Hemel Hempstead retain their remoteness in their quiet locations. It goes over the typical chalk uplands of the Gade valley and up to the beechwoods of the National Trust Ashridge estate. It passes charming 17th century cottages, a vineyard, a Buddhist Temple and long established churches. The country truly merits its AONB designation.
This walk is over the undulating plateau of the Chiltern dip slope, through the parklands of some of the 18th Century mansions which dot the Chilterns.
