This is a moderate walk taking in some of the Ridgeway National Trail, parts of the BBOWT Yoesden Nature Reserve and Radnage Churchyard, Bledlow Ridge, skirting around Lodge Hill and we'll stop for a drink at the Lions of Bledlow at about the 8 mile point.

Please bring a packed lunch.

If it has been wet, expect muddy and slippery paths so please wear appropriate walking boots. 

Update: After the recent rain you may even prefer comfortable wellies with good grippy soles, it will be muddy in places. If you are not used to walking in wellies it is advised to try out on a shorter walk first and the fit of your socks will also be important.

Route slightly modified and corrected after recce: fraction longer but reduced ascent.
