Route Outline

This is a long village! Cheddington will forever be associated with the Great Train Robbery although this claim to fame rests solely on a proximity to where the crime took place in 1962. The hillsides here show traces of lynchets, ridges or ledges formed along the downhill side of a plot by ploughing in ancient times. Murray's 1947 Buckinghamshire Guide says of Cheddington "Has a flavour of Beds. and Herts. Church old and dull". You must judge for yourself. The village was and remains the only village on the main Euston to Glagow line; the station was reputedly built to allow for the easy transportation of Lord Roseberry's racehorses. Three Horseshoes is a smashing little pub with log fires in winter. Adnams and Greene King IPA are on offer.
