The format for this group is slightly different. The aim is to follow all 20 walks in the book Adventurous Pub Walks in the Chilterns by Jean Patefield.

These walks are all spread around the Chilterns and will require a longish drive to most start points. They are also quite long, varying between 7 and 11 miles.

Some of the more local walks are over ground covered by existing walking groups but, in the interests of completeness, all will be walked as published. However, for various reasons, the walks will be done in reverse sequence i.e. starting with walk 20.

The walks will all be led and so there is no need to have the book or maps.

The walks will start at 10:00 on the 3rd Friday of the month. The inaugural walk will be on Fri 15th March 2013.
