Chilterns and Thames Valley

Hidden Landscapes

Ascent: unknown
Duration: 2 hours 53 minutes

Walk 22: Ibstone, Turville and Fingest

Both Emma and I were surprised by today's walk. Here, just a short distance from home we found deeply folding valleys that we had no idea existed. This landscape feels like the Dales; it's hard to believe that the M40 is just a couple of miles away.

The highlight for me was Turville Church, with its curiously double-gabled tower. I'm just a little alarmed that after living in this area for seven years we can still be discovering such beautiful places for the first time.
