Princes Risborough to Wendover, 12 Nov
The walk from Princes Risborough will now end at Wendover, and there will no longer be a lunch stop at Butlers Cross. Those joining the walk must bring sufficient food and drink for the whole walk. 9.00 London Marylebone, 9.34 at Princes Risborough
As Princes Risborough and Wendover are on separate lines buy a day return to Aylesbury (from the edge of the travel zone for those with that option, cost approx £14). This ticket is very nearly the same price as any complicated purchase of separate out and return tickets.
There is no opt out of the walk which is now less than 9 miles, but there are many options for food and drink at Wendover before your return on one of two trains per hour, journey time approx 50 mins.
(There are no facilities at Little Kimble and concerns regarding timing to get the hourly train without getting cold, maybe wet and late home prompted the change of destination. HS2 works at Wendover do not greatly effect the route to the station and town.)
This is a great walk following the Ridgeway with a detour to a Nature Reserve, and has beautiful autumnal colours and some extensive views. There are some steep climbs, and conditions underfoot may be difficult on the descents. Poles are advisable.
