Route Outline

This is a route that can be completed by using two adjacent railway stations, Cheddington in Buckinghamshire and Tring in Hertfordshire. The route follows a scenic section of the Grand Union Canal and passes an old church with an avenue of yew trees. There are fine distant views of Southend and Westend Hills and the walk finishes with a climb up Pitstone Hill to join part of the Ridgeway, concluding at Tring station via Aldbury Nowers. Despite the well-known chalk hill of Ivinghoe Beacon being a distinctive landmark in the Chilterns, for long periods on this walk it is either not seen due to the lie of the land or else it appears diminutively on the distant horizon.
