Ascent: 434 metres
Duration: 3 hours 7 minutes

Walk 28: Princes Risborough and Chinnor Hill

Today marks the start of my determined effort to complete all the walks in the Chilterns and Thames Valley Pathfinder Guide.

It's been an overcast day, but I always find that makes for fast walking, especially when the year's not yet really warmed up.

The highlight of the walk was a feature not mentioned in the book: the Bledlow Cross. The route passes so close that I couldn't stop myself hacking into the woodland to find it once more. In the three years since I previously visited it the cross has got a bit more overgrown and a little less distinct as it continues to be reclaimed by nature. I like that. This place will always be special to me.
