Wychert Way Walkers
Calorie Walk-off 14

Do you enjoy walking the local fieldpaths? You don't have to be a paid-up, card carrying member of the Ramblers to take pleasure in our local Buckinghamshire countryside — many folk just love to embrace the beauty and fresh air of our local rural surroundings on a very ad hoc basis, whenever they feel like getting out and about on foot.

If you are an occasional walker only, you may not have come across the circular walk that has been way-marked from Haddenham, called the 'Wychert Way'. Local walking enthusiasts, Brian Bowman and Jim Robinson, are currently preparing illustrated guide notes to assist those keen to explore the route, which (as the name suggests) takes in the various other 'Wychert Villages' including Cuddington, Long Crendon and Aston Sandford. We hope to be publishing those details soon ... nudge-nudge, chaps!

In the meantime, you may be interested to know that the 'Wychert Way' also overlaps in some places with the 'Aylesbury Ring' — a 32 mile long distance path which is a circular route around the county town of Aylesbury, never very far from the town but mostly in quiet and peaceful rural countryside. It goes through very varied countryside taking in rivers, canals, woods, pastures and arable fields as well as visiting many Buckinghamshire towns and villages; always with views of either the Chilterns or the rolling hills of the Vale of Aylesbury and sometimes both.

You can find a well written and photo-illustrated account of the Aylesbury Ring in the online version of Walk Magazine here.

Also easily accessed is a colour brochure and a photographic gallery showing some of the delightful rural views that can be enjoyed from various points around the Aylesbury Ring. (This is intended to whet your appetite — not as a spectator's subtitute!)
