Wednesday Walk Saunderton via Bledlow Circular - Bledlow Ridge and Rolling Chiltern Hills

Book 2, Walk 2 - Saunderton via Bledlow Circular

Length: 17.3 km (10.7 miles ) But seems a bit longer due to long afternoon
Toughness: 6 out of 10 Two steep(ish) hills and several hillocks

London Marylebone: 10-13 hrs Aylesbury service
Arrives Saunderton: 10-53 hrs

Return Saunderton: 15-53, 16-51, 17-25, 18-26 and 19-27 hrs


No navigation tests proposed for us today - we just follow the Book 2 Directions for this enjoyable, energetic outing in the Chilterns. The morning is mostly flat or undulating, but not steep. The inclines all come in the afternoon.
Lunch today is at the Lions pub, Bledlow - which I have usually found to be walker friendly and good. After lunch you have a mixture of woods, fields and open farmland, with two steep inclines and several hillocks - all to keep the SWC walker honest. You come to an attractive church, St Mary the Virgin, in Radnage (worth a visit if open) before you have your final steep climb up onto Bledlow Ridge. After a woodland ridge walk it's down over a vast field, then along field boundaries and over fields before your final descent back into Saunderton. Your tea stop is at the pub down the road from the railway station - the Golden Cross.

Walk Directions here L=2.2

Six SWC walkers were on the 10.13 from Marylebone and one caught up with us at the lunchtime pub, so 7 in all. There was also a sizeable group of female French walkers, well equipped with poles, but seemingly not too sure of where they were going. We all got off at Saunderton, but the two groups set off in opposite directions, the SWC walkers (unlike our politicians grappling with Brexit) completely sure of the way forward. Excellent conditions underfoot, with only one slightly muddy stretch all day. Three sandwich eaters sat outside Lions at the picnic tables provided and the other four (one of whom paid a quick preprandial visit to Lyde Garden) opted for a pub lunch. Two picnickers pressed on after a fairly brief stop, keen to get climbing Chinnor Hill and, for one of the two, there was the added incentive of a free ticket to The Book of Mormon. The directions were easy to follow and the two walkers got back to Saunderton in plenty of time to catch the 3.53 train to London. Walks in the Chilterns are always a joy, and today's weather was ideal: a cool gentle breeze with increasingly warm sunshine.
To expand on David's comprehensive report, a number of our fair weather walkers stayed away today, no doubt put off by the dire weather forecast which threatened rain, thunder storms, pestilence, plague, locusts, Black Death, Brexit and worse. As it transpired we enjoyed a glorious Spring Day with no rain and intermittent sunny spells delightful walking weather. The five of us who set off some time after the two sandwichers stopped for a relaxing tea at walk end in the pleasant garden of the Golden Cross pub before catching the 17 25 hrs train, leaving Saunderton in late afternoon sunshine. On arriving in Marylebone some 45 mins later it had just started to snow ! There you go........

Saunderton Double Bill (via Lacey Green, Bledlow and West Wycombe) with Navigation Exercise Option

Book 2 Walks 2 and 3: AKA Saunderton North and South

Train: Take the 9:53 AM Aylesbury train from London Marylebone to Saunderton, arriving at 10:49. Return trains from Saunderton are at 55 minutes past the hour until 22:55. Buy a day return to Saunderton.

Distance: Various options abound with this double-header….

First leg: Saunderton North (via Lacey Green and Bledlow): 12ish miles or 19ish km for those more metrically minded.

Second leg: Saunderton South (via West Wycombe) short option: 6 miles or 9.6km.

Total for both: 18ish miles or 30ish km.

Difficulty: 6 out of 10 (4 out of 10 for the second leg only).

So, I recently did the first leg of this walk on an evening outing a few weeks ago. In the moonlight, it was a cracking route – so thought it would also be very enjoyable in daylight…. The route is option (b) in the instructions for Book 2 Walk 2 – entitled “ending at Princes Risborough” – though it reconnects with the main route to Bledlow as specified in the instructions (rather than ending in Princes Risborough)…

As an undulating circular route, I also thought it would make a good navigation exercise for those interested in honing their map and compass skills for the upcoming Scottish trip. For those, I would suggest we walk the route in opposite (being clockwise) – using map printouts (from the website) and compass…no gizmos…

Both groups should arrive at the lunch pub about the same time….

After a break at the Cross Keys in Saunderton, the more energetic (and any late arrivals) can set off on the short version of the Saunderton South walk via West Wycombe….For those taking their time and perhaps taking a break in West Wycombe at one of its pubs….you may be lucky enough to complete the walk with a reasonably full moon along a semi-wooded ridge back to Saunderton.

More information and the instructions can be found here and here. Don't forget both sets of instructions and the navigators should also bring a print out of the map for the morning section!

Lunch will be at the Lions in Bledlow (01844 343 345). Tea can be had at the Cross Keys near Saunderton Station. If doing the second loop, refreshments can also be had at The George and Dragon Hotel in West Wycombe.

Enjoy the walk!
T=2.2
Six off the train met 2 on the platform, for a total of 8 for this Saunderton Special under blustery variable conditions.

After some initial discussion, everyone opted for the navigation option (with the non navigators agreeing to the rules of the navigation exercise thank you for your patience). The route proved a good one for navigation with lots of undulating hills and various path options from which to choose. Generally, our budding Scottish walk leaders navigated the field without incident....with one exception, just before lunch.....with one of the intended paths hidden from sight (probably in plain view), we decided to take an alternate route to the lunch pub...but, in haste (or hunger), unintentionally chose the least direct option of various on offer.....Eventually, we made it to the lunch pub (after two calls deferring our booking) and were warmly welcomed despite our delayed arrival... At lunch we discussed the importance of relocation skills when navigating....(and a nav exercise would not be complete without needing to relocate at least once)....

On a full stomach after lunch, the route finding went very smoothly....and I definitely recommend the alternate route for this walk which brings you along the ridge on the other side of the valley (through Loosely Row) with some fine views....

Before lunch we had some cloud and sunny spells, after lunch was decidedly more overcast with light mist arriving on our final approach to Saunderton.

Back in Saunderton, 6 went to the Cross Keys for a drink, with the first question being...should we catch the train in 19 minutes or 1 hour and 19; we opted for the latter....Then, after finishing the drink, the second question, who was up for the advanced navigation exercise....in the dark, wind and rain (almost perfect Scottish mountain simulation should the weather come in with no visibility)....strangely, everyone opted for staying in the pub and having a second drink before catching the 18:56.....
correction...drinks in Saunderton at the Golden Cross (not the Cross Keys)...

Evening Walk

CW2 Walk 2* - Saunderton via Lacey Green
Length: 9.9km (6.2 miles)

Catch the 18:24 train from London Marylebone, arrives Saunderton 19:08. Return trains from Saunderton 20:54, 21:53, 22:54.

Will stop for a drink / meal at the Whipp Inn, Lacey Green or The Boot, Bledlow Ridge.

* Start with the 2(b) Alternative ending at Princes Risborough route, to then pick up the main walk directions at [3] to then take the short walk option back to Saunderton.

Hi. New to group. Is the protocol to bring head torches given it'll be dark by 6?Thanks.
head torches? always recommended in winter
I have to say that from what I know of the regulars on these evening walks, they tend to discourage the use of torches. This sounds barmy, but actually there is a lot more ambient light for night walks in this part of the world than you might think and once your eyes adjust to the dark, you will be surprised how well you can see.

Added to that is the fact that this evening is a FULL MOON and by the light of that you can definitely see to walk (providing there is no cloud, of course). This is a magical experience if you have never tried it, but you can't do it if in the presence of torches or other artificial illumination as your eyes then do not adjust.

But of course it is useful to bring a torch for checking maps or directions or whatever. But if you really get into night walking you find yourself minimising your use of them as much as possible, since every time you switch a torch on you lose your night vision for some minutes. Once your eyes have adjusted even a mobile phone screen seems unbearably bright.

One last remark: all this, as on all SWC walks, is at your own risk. And all the above is my personal view, not the view of the SWC, because there is no official view of the SWC.
Astronomers use a red light torch when stargazing as this is better at preserving night vision. Covering a normal torch with a few layers of red cellophane should work fairly well too.
The usual two disembarked from the appointed train under a surprisingly, if slightly hazy, perfectly round full super snow moon. After waiting to see if others would emerge, we set off on the gently rolling terrain of the route. The moon provided sufficient light for us to manage without lights aided by the fact that one was very familiar with the route. We kept a good pace and arrived at the Boot Inn just in time for last orders...the food and ambience were both excellent so highly recommended....On a more relaxed pace after dinner, I am reasonably positive that I saw the ghostly apparition of a barn owl silently swooping low across an adjacent field...such is the magic of a moonlit walk…..

Ps: As an addendum, I learned later that a third walker arrived by car just as we were heading off....he set off (hoping to catch us) but ended up walking most of the route on his own..in the dark kudos to him!

So, in total, 3.....

Saturday Walk: Saunderton Circular via Bledlow

Saunderton Circular via Bledlow Book 2 Walk 2
11.7 miles, 18.3 km.
Toughness: 6 /10

A fine walk in the Chilterns.
Trains: Take the 10:13 Aylesbury train from Marylebone arriving at Saunderton at 10:55. Return trains from Saunderton at xx:50
Lunch: The Lions of Bledlow: 01844 343345
Tea: The Golden Cross near Saunderton station is a great place to wait for the train. For an earlier stop, there is the Boot at Bledlow Ridge.
T=2.2

18 on this walk on a warm dry and even occasionally sunny day. Anyone looking forward to a mudbath would have been disappointed. Only the occasional lightly mired stretch to contend with.
Even the lunch pub gave us nothing to complain about with its big portions and alright beer. One or two hills it would be nice to get rid of, but, apart from that, a good day out.

Sunday Walk: Saunderton Circular via Lacey Green (or on to Princes Risborough)

Saunderton Circular via Lacey Green
Book 2 walk 2 + extra download
13.25 km. 8.25 miles approx
4/10
You got two choices today, a short walk looping back to Saunderton station (8.25 miles), or a short walk ending in Princes Risborough (8.1 miles).
The first choice, a hybrid of the Saunderton via Bledlow and Saunderton to Princes Risborough walks, doesn’t visit 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 along the west side. This combination is not exactly rocket science but you will need the connecting information below. (After the scientific-looking rocket).
The second choice, finishing in Princes Risborough, also involves both sets of instructions but you follow them as intended, remembering to follow the Princes Risborough directions from Bledlow.
Trains: Get the 10:13 Aylesbury train from Marylebone arriving Saunderton 10:53.
Return from Saunderton at xx:50.
A return to Princes Risborough is only a few pence more than one to Saunderton and covers both endings.
If you decide to finish in Princes Risborough, trains return from there at xx:20 and xx:45.
Lunch: The Whip in Lacey Green 01844 344060. Phoning suggested. The Whip has a good choice of beer, some unusual ciders, and last time, people seemed happy with their food. You reach here a little early, about 12. I considered a later train but reckoned you'd rather get round before dark.
The Boot 01494 481499 is a later alternative for the circular walk. A bit too late, some say. They serve food 12-6.
Anyone deciding on the Princes Risborough ending has another late option, the Lions of Bledlow 01844 343345, serving till 3.
Tea: The Golden Cross pub does tea, cakes, and stuff and is handy for Saunderton station. It’s on the main road, just past the station turn-in.
The Bird in Hand pub is not far from Princes Risborough station (at 47 Station Road). The "stay on the road" directions take you there. I don't think they do tea.
Directions: available here.
You need two sets of directions:
  • the main book 2 walk (on the “download walk” button), and
  • the alternative walk (on the ”finish in Princes Risborough” button. - note that this also includes the alternative start).
Start with the alternative directions (titled Saunderton to Princes Risborough). After lunch in Lacey Green, continue with these directions until they join the main (book 2) walk. This is just before point [3] in the main walk's text.
Now, pay attention!









  • To follow the short walk back to Saunderton, at point [3] itself, (literally the next gate), switch to the short walk directions at the end of the main walk text (i.e. turn left along a bridleway instead of going straight on through the “kissing gate with a three-armed signpost”).
  • To head for Princes Risborough, you do go through that kissing gate and follow the main walk on into Bledlow, where you switch back to the Princes Risborough ending. T=2.2.hybrid

Saunderton to Princes Risborough via Lacey Green, 14 Jan 2018

Just 1 on this dull day, though there was a group of four that I didn't recognise as regulars, keeping ardently to itself and following the same route almost as far as Lacey Green.

Perhaps people were put off by the need to assemble the walk from passages in three different instructions.

The Whip in Lacey Green served a huge portion of roast chicken for a lower than average price, but even at noon only fitted me in, perched in the bar area, because I was alone; it implied it would not have been able to accommodate a larger group.

Back on the 1520 train, and very glad to have had a start time that was sensibly early.
David, sorry to hear you were the only one. I find it difficult to describe these variants without making it all sound more complicated than it is. I'm not surprised if it deters some.There are actually only two sets of directions needed but it doesn't help that the alternative start is on a tab called "finish".I think, ideally, the two alternatives should have the relevant bits from book 2 inserted into their text so there would be no need to print both out. I guess this harks back to the days when the book was king.(And my idea for the circular isn't even an official option so doesn't have any text.)
I've got the tone of this report wrong if it provoked a need to apologise in any walk poster.

Our volunteers do great service to this community and leave the world a very much better place, and I for one am grateful for all their efforts.
No worries.

Saunderton Circular via Bledlow

Saunderton Circular via Bledlow Book 2 Walk 2
11.7 miles, 18.3 km.
Toughness: 6 /10
A favourite Chilterns walk, with a favourite pub thrown in. There are many fine views out over the valley and plain. Largely gentle with one or two steep bits.
Trains: Get the 10:13 Aylesbury train from Marylebone arriving Saunderton 10:53.
Trains back at xx:50 from platform 2 (If you just miss it, you could get the xx:54 from Platform 1 back up the line to Princes Risborough and change there for London).
Lunch: The Lions of Bledlow: 01844 343345 nice choice of beers, extensive menu.
Bledlow's Lyde Garden is worth a quick visit and is a possible picnic place. The entrance is near the church.
Tea:
The Golden Cross is handy for Saunderton station. A welcoming family pub. It’s on the main road, just past the station turn-in.
Or the earlier Boot 01494 481499 at Bledlow Ridge. Both have gardens.
Directions: available here or in Book 2.
T=2.2
There were 8, 6 had come for the group walk and a couple planning to do the walk independently, who joined us for the day. Everyone enjoyed the pub reasonable priced food, lovely garden, excellent beer. sunny. The gpx is different to the instructions and I'll do an update. This is a great walk with endless lovely views. The garden in Bledlow is worth a visit.

Sunday Walk: Hills and valleys in the Chilterns

Book 2 Walk 2b or 2c, Saunderton via Lacey Green and Bledlow to Princes Risborough or back to Saunderton
Length: 20.3km (12.6 miles) or 13km (8.1miles) Toughness: 6/10 or 3/10

10:13 Aylesbury train from Marylebone arriving at Saunderton at 10:53.

Return trains from Saunderton to Marylebone are at xx:50 (journey time 46 minutes). If you just miss a train, take one four minutes later in the opposite direction to Princes Risborough and change there for a train to Marylebone. This will add 25 minutes to the journey time, but will be quicker than waiting an hour for the next direct train. Return trains from Princes Risborough are at xx:20 and xx:45 (journey time 46 or 51 mins).
Buy an off-peak day return to Princes Risborough if you intend returning from there.

This variation on a familiar Chilterns walk is not often done, but includes a morning extension for those who want to stretch their legs a bit, as well as a shorter finish for those not feeling up to a 20km walk.. It offers a nice mixture of woods, fields and hills, and takes in a 3.5km section of Saunderton via Bledlow Circular before lunch as well as intersecting at Lacey Green with the Princes Risborough to Great Missenden walk. The route starts by climbing eastwards up to Lacey Green before heading west to join the standard Saunderton via Bledlow walk. After lunch in Bledlow you have the choice of continuing on the circular route back to Saunderton, or taking the much shorter route eastwards to finish in Princes Risborough.

The recommended lunch stop is The Lions in Bledlow (01844 343345). An alternative is The Whip Inn in Lacey Green (01844 344060) but this comes rather too early in the walk.

You will need to download the ‘Finish in Princes Risborough’ Walk Directions, which cover the start of the morning route as well as the shorter afternoon finish. Unless you bring TOCW Book 2, you will also need to download the Book 2 Walk 2 directions
10 6 did the long walk, 4 the short. The Lions in Bledlow provided rapid service. The Princes Risborough ending is a bit of an anticlimax. (For a short walk, I still reckon you’re better off stopping at the Whip and taking the short circular back to Saunderton), Anyway, we made our way round to the Bird in Hand near the station. Good choice of beer but they don’t do tea. mild some sun dry

Lunch: The Lions of Bledlow: 01844 343345 nice choice of beers, extensive menu.
Bledlow's Lyde Garden is worth a quick visit and is a possible picnic place. The entrance is near the church.

Directions: available here or in Book 2.

Is anyone planning on doing this particular walk tomorrow?
13 of us decided to explore the excellent Saunderton via Bledlow circular on this perfect summer’s day of buttercup and cow parsley mania. Three went off to do their own thing but were later spotted picnicking in the beautiful mini gorge of Lyde Garden, amongst the gunnera and dragon flies. Most others had a palatable lunch in the Lion pub garden, albeit with a less palatable service. The afternoon brought wildlife interest, with a young deer unfazed by our presence, though a hare huddled by the side of the path seemed less well. Most retired to the Golden Cross near the station for a late afternoon tea.

Sunday walk 1: A chilterns variation

Saunderton Circular via Lacey Green
Book 2 walk 2a + download
13.25 km. 8.25 miles approx
4/10
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: available here.
You need two sets of directions: the main book 2 walk (the “download walk” button) and the alternative walk (the ”finish in Princes Risborough” button).
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 [3] in the main text. At point [3] 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”).
The walk went ok. 4 dry cloudy cold but not freezing Hints of sleet in the wind at times. There was a light dusting of snow on the ground, particularly in the morning. There were muddy patches too a short stretch in the morning and two stretches in the afternoon. One walker was disqualified for cheating (took a shorter way back to avoid the climb onto the ridge). One criticism was that the first pub (the Whip) comes up too soon (we arrived at 12 after a dawdly morning) and the second pub (the Boot) too late. That said, the Whip has a good choice of beer, some unusual ciders, and people seemed happy with their food.

Sunday Second Walk - a Chilterns figure-of-eight

Book 2 Walks 2a and 3a, Saunderton figure-of-eight
Length: 18.3km (11.4 miles) Toughness: 4/10

10:28 Aylesbury train from Marylebone arriving at Saunderton at 11:19.

Return trains from Saunderton to Marylebone are at xx:16 (journey time 55 minutes). If you just miss this hourly service, catch a train a few minutes later in the opposite direction to Princes Risborough, for a connection to a fast train to Marylebone (journey time is about the same).

This walk combines the short versions of two Book 2 walks centred on Saunderton: Saunderton via Bledlow Circular and Saunderton via West Wycombe Circular. You can do them in either order, returning to Saunderton for lunch halfway through the day. A convenient lunch stop might be the Golden Cross (01494 562293) close to Saunderton station. An alternative early lunch pub would be either The Boot at Bledlow Ridge, or the George and Dragon Hotel at West Wycombe, depending on which of the short walks you do first.

Unless you’re carrying TOCW Book 2, you will need to download walk directions for both Walk 2 and Walk 3. Follow the directions for the short walks at the end of each document.
Sunday 6 Sept. Book 2 Walk 2 and 3. 9 w= sunny and warm Nine of us assembled outside the station and after a quick discussion it was clear no one really wanted to do a figure of eight so we all did the lovely main walk Saunderton via Bledlow circular. I have done this a few times before but never in warm sunny weather and what a super day out it was. Excellent lunch for 4 at the Lions in Bledlow whilst 5 of us ate sandwiches in the Lyde Water Garden. after lunch the walk got even better with some fine views of the hills and valleys and the trees and vegetation looking particularly splendid in the glowing September light. There was time for 5 of us to have tea and cakes in the Golden Cross pub before catching the 5.16 train back to London. A wonderful day out in great company.
Technical point: In the download instructions at page 3 2nd column, penultimate para the gpx route does not follow the written walk instructions. Instead of turning right along the Ridgeway the route file takes you up the path ahead of you which results in a longer but less steep climb. You reach the lane where you turn right to soon reach the horse blocking barrier where you pick up the main route. In the interests of research I took the gpx route through the wood and its fine but I would not recommend it in wet weather.
