WALK – Where two major drovers’ routes cross
May 21, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
Cattle were driven long distances to the growing market in London. The route from mid-Wales to Barnet crossed the route from the Midlands to Uxbridge on Amersham Common. This eight-mile circular walk will explore evidence on the ground and on old maps as we walk key parts of both routes. There are two drovers’ inns on the route including The Ivy House where we will stop for a sandwich lunch (cost not included). The route crosses the River Misbourne – a chalk stream flowing strongly as a result of the wet winter – and the climb out of the valley affords stunning views towards Amersham.
Start from: Chalfont & Latimer station – entrance on the Station Approach i.e. other side from the main car park. There is car parking – charges apply – at the station.
This walk is part of the 2022 Chilterns Walking Festival. Please book by clicking on this link to their website.
