This walk takes you high over the wooded Chiltern hills down to a picturesque Chiltern village where there is a good pub (Skirmett the Frog) for drinks (although it closes at 3pm so we may need to keep an eye on the time). It then follows the green pastures of the Hamble valley to the legendary village of Hambleden near the end of the walk (where there is another pub). Bring a packed lunch as we will only stop at the pub for drinks. If people want to, we can stop at the pub in Hambleden for food before returning to the car park (which isn't far away).
The walk begins at the Mill End car park, grid ref SU7885, approximate postcode RG9 3BG. This is 400m (450 yds) on the left up the Skirmett road from the junction at Mill End near Henley-on-Thames. This is a large car park which has WCs.
To reach the Mill End car park from the London area, either (1) take the M4, turn off at a sign for Henley; after Henley, turn right and fork right on the A4155 or (2) take the M4, turn off at a sign for Henley but avoid the town by taking the A404, signposted Marlow; turn left to go through Marlow on the A4155. From the M40, turn off at Exit 4 as for Marlow, and do as above. The Mill End car park can be reached by turning north at Mill End, signposted Hambleden, Skirmett, Fingest, 400m (450 yds) on the left.
