Saunderton Circular via Lacey Green
Book 2 walk 2a + download
13.25 km. 8.25 miles approx
This hybrid of the Saunderton /Bledlow and Saunderton /Princes Risborough walks doesn’t go to either Bledlow or Princes Risborough. You follow the alternative directions along the east side of the Saunderton valley to lunch in Lacey Green. Later, you join the shorter version of the main walk for the return to Saunderton. This untried combination is not exactly rocket science but please let ‘Houston’ know how it went. Trains:
Get the 10:15
Aylesbury train from Marylebone arriving Saunderton 10:55.
Return from Saunderton at xx:50
If any of you do end up in Princes Risborough, trains return from there at xx:20 and xx:45. Lunch: The Whip
in Lacey Green 01844 344060. Phoning suggested. The Boot
01494 481499 is a later alternative. (Another late option would be to stay on the Princes Risborough walk for the Lions of Bledlow 01844 343345). Tea:
The Golden Cross is handy for Saunderton station. It’s on the main road, just past the station turn-in. It's a pub but does tea, cakes, and stuff. The Boot
is an earlier possibility but perhaps you ought to make the most of the available light. The sun sets at 16:25 today. Directions:
You need two sets of directions: the main book 2 walk (the “download walk”
button) and the alternative walk (the ”finish in Princes Risborough”
Start with the alternative directions (titled Saunderton to Princes Risborough). After lunch in Lacey Green, continue with these directions until they join the main walk. This is just before point  in the main text. At point  itself, (literally the next gate), switch to the short walk directions
at the end of the main text (i.e. turn left along a bridleway instead of going straight on through the “kissing gate with a three-armed signpost”).
