Saturday 9 July: Great Missenden Circular Walk

Fourteen hikers turned out for our walk in Great Missenden. We followed the South Bucks Way and Chiltern Trails. We passed some pretty villages including Little and Great Hampden, Bryant Bottom and Prestwood. Our walk took us through fields, woodland and some very overgrown paths. Lucy and I both had secateurs, however,  Lucy did a better job of clearing the path. I hope everyone is ok.
We had lunch at The Hampden Arms; diners were very happy with the service, portions and quality of food. Those who had the picnic were able to see the ground being prepared for a cricket game. The game was in full flow when we left Great Hampden.
We passed Missenden Abbey where Gillian and Stuart got married many years ago.  We had plenty of time to enjoy tea and cake at The Twits Café attached to Roald Dahl museum  at the end of the walk.
Many thanks to Lucy and Peter for all their hard work in planning the route.
