Overview

A moderate walk with a few hills. We start near St Lawrence Church at West Wycombe and head along the ridge to Saunderton. We then cross the railway line and the road and head on to Bradenham for an extended banana break. We then work our way through Naphill Common for lunch at Hughenden (approx 2/3 of the way through the walk) where there is a cafe and toilets. We then return to the cars via Downley Common.
