Chilterns and Thames Valley

Ascent: 355 metres
Duration: 2 hours 17 minutes

Walk 23: Coombe Hill and Chequers

One final walk for this long weekend, and I'm once again on the fringes of privilege. Signs attached to trees on the edge of the Chequers Estate warn of CCTV and remind visitors that in just a few places on our island trespass remains a criminal rather than civil offence.

Neither of these two things sit comfortably with me.
