Wendover Woods

On a lovely summers day we decided on a Ten Mile hike starting in the market Town of Wendover in the Chilterns Hills. Parking was easy and we soon found the Ridgeway – Chiltern Link Footpath, this path is 87 mile long and runs from Avebury to Ivinghoe beacon. We soon passed Grim’s Ditch Earthworks dating from the Iron age and then onto Hale Wood and then Wendover Woods. Haddington Hill stands as the highest point in the Chiltern Hills at 267m you will find a small marker a Cafe and Toilets and plenty of parking. On the final leg of the journey we walked along the Grand Union canal Wendover arm now disused but with water still flowing into it its a haven for wildlife, the canal was completed in 1799 but closed 100 years later after leaks forced it to shut.
