Overview

Though not particularly hilly, the walk includes terrific views from the North Chiltern Hills, delightful patches of woodland and gentle countryside. We may get to see some camels and wallabies as we walk past Whipsnade Zoo. We will then make a short stop at the Tree Cathedral which was created as a WW1 memorial. We then move on to fabulous views over the Dunstable Downs and may spot flying gliders. Lunch will be at the Chilterns Gateway Centre (please bring sandwiches) where café and toilets are available. The return is via Kensworth Church.
