Haddenham Village Society is hosting a Spring Walk on Wednesday 10th May, on this occasion visiting Cholesbury in the Chiltern Hills.

A guided walk, we will visit an Iron Age "Hill Fort" (how does it have a perpetually full pond?), Grim's Ditch ( what is it?), a church yard with a grave to a sailor who was at the Battle of Trafalgar, hear about poverty in the poorest village in England, follow a drover's route and see a windmill featured in a painting in the Ashmolean Museum (who was the dog?).

Optional Lunch at The Full Moon Pub on Cholesbury Common. Orders taken on our arrival at 1000 hrs.

Distance:. 4 miles of easy, relatively flat and stile free walking.

Timings: We will meet at The Full Moon Pub (postcode HP5 2UH; what3words: ///bronzes.graver.blackbird) at 10:00 hrs for a 10:20 hrs departure. Please park opposite the pub in a lay-by to leave room for other customers. There are loos and a quick coffee is possible.
