Pete's Walks - The South Bucks Way

About my walk

I walked the South Bucks Way in August 2005, the week after I had completed my Chiltern Way walk. I wanted to do a walk that I could complete in three consecutive days, walking about 15 miles a day. By doing the South Bucks Way in both directions, the distance of 46 miles was ideal for my purposes. Each of the three days I walked, I drove to the starting point, walked so many miles along the South Bucks Way and then turned round and walked back, the same methodology Iíd used on the Chiltern Way.

The only guide I had for the walk was the leaflet from Buckinghamshire County Council. I didnít refer to this very often when walking though, as I used the OS Explorer 172 map to guide me. Most of the way was fairly well waymarked, the most obvious exception being in Chalfont St Peter, although the map and the path on the ground did not always match up.

A note about the photographs: I didn't have a camera with me on this walk, as I didn't decide to create a web site until much later. So I drove round several months afterwards to take some photo's to add to the journal on the site. As in all such cases where the photo's were taken at a later date I have added the date to the captions below the photographs.
