Route Outline

Lying some 12 miles to the north west of Aylesbury, evidence suggests that the earliest setters began the creation of the village around 660 AD on a site close to St. Michael's church. The name Claydon derives from the Anglo-Saxon for clayey hill with Steeple thought to have been added in recognition of the steeple on the church. St Michaels' has a pleasant but unremarkable interior, the only point of interest being the vestibule, which is shared by bellringers and the congregation as they come to the service! The pub is an agreeable place with a large games room and garden, a proper "local" serving Courage Bitter, Greene King IPA and a guest ale.
