Fancy a strenuous hike or a leisurely stroll to a country pub? The Wychert Way has it all.
With the longer days, warmer weather and hopefully a lot less rain (!) there are few better ways to enjoy the countryside around Haddenham than a walk in "our" part of the Aylesbury Vale.
The Wychert Way is essentially a circular walk around Haddenham connecting the villages of Chearsley, Cuddington, Gibraltar, Dinton , Ford, Aston Sandford and Kingsey all clearly way marked with Green Wychert Way Roundels picture on Public or Permissive paths. From Haddenham there are a series of links to the Wychert Way (marked with Orange roundels) that provide routes direct to Chearsley, Cuddington , Gibraltar, Dinton and Aston Sandford and in so doing connecting Haddenham to the Wychert Way.
The combination of the Wychert Way and Wychert Way Links provides the opportunity for shorter circular walks between Haddenham and each of the surrounding villages. Most of the stiles on the Wychert Way have been replaced by gates making the walk that little bit easier.
There is a leaflet available from the Haddenham Garden Centre, Haddenham Station and the Seven Stars , Dinton and it can also be down loaded from the Wychert Way website: www.wychert.org.uk . Also on the website are some excellent notes prepared by local historian Peter Gulland on points of interest on the route.
The Haddenham Village Society are organising evening walks to the Bell at Chearsley (Friday 24th June ) and the Crown at Cuddington (Friday 8th July). Meet at 6.00pm at the Haddenham Village Hall car park and enjoy a pleasant walk and a meal or drink and then an optional return walk to Haddenham. All welcome. No need to book — just turn up!
