Chorleywood to Chesham walk

The Chess Valley, one of the most beautiful and tranquil parts of the Chiltern Hills, yet never more than a couple of kilometres from the Metropolitan Line. The walk dips in and out of the valley, with a number of fine panoramic views

    Cool Dudes Walking Club, Jan-20

    #swcwalks #swcwalks81 Marek Larwood goes on a walk from Chorleywood to Chesham, through the Chiltern Hills, taking in the Chess Valley, River Chess, Chenies, the Red Lion Pub, and Latimer House. Both stops are on London Underground's Metropolitan Line. The walk is from the Saturday Walkers Club and the route is here:

    The walk was on January 10th 2020.

    I also test out the Olympus OMD EM5 Mark III as a vlogging camera with the 9-18 F4.0-5.6 wide lens. More details on that below.

  • Chorleywood to Chesham. 21/1/13
    amib, Feb-13

    What a winter-wonderland of a walk this 10 miler turned out to be! A whole day walking in the snow...wonderful!

    When snow fall in London seems to stop all those trains running south of the Thames, try Chiltern Railways; they seem to be one of the few able to cope!

    Thus, setting out from Chorleywood station, 'Yaktrax' secured underfoot (initially, at least!), the walker was soon on the Common and enjoying some wintry scenery.

    Shortly after, it's on to the Chorleywood House estate to meet our companion for much of the day, the River Chess.

    Then, it's on across loads more of the white stuff; what was underneath, this walker has no idea, but it made for great walking! A water cress farm was passed, with Little Egrets and Herons close by, prior to reaching Chenies for lunch. There's a choice of pubs here, or a pleasant church porch, as in this case.

    After lunch, it's on past Chenies Manor, into woodland, and then on through fields towards Latimer House. There have been some fine views throughout the walk, but, arguably, some finer ones await over the Chess valley below.

    The Chess Valley Path is left behind for the final section into Chesham, but this is equally picturesque and affords some fine views over the town.

    Just as at the beginning, the transition from rural to town is very sudden.

    Another wonderful day's walking, particularly with the snow as a back drop, and, fortuitously, all within the TFL fare zones!

    (As a result of my 'Yaktrax' trial today, I would advise the 'Pro' version over the 'Walker' for country walking as the latter was prone to slipping off the boot).
