With holidays cancelled and travel restricted, many of us have been discovering new places to visit in the local area. If you are seeking out new destinations for a walk, 3B Hire has some suggestions. With extensive local knowledge, we know of some hidden gems that might appeal.
Haddenham, Aylesbury and High Wycombe are all within a short drive of the spectacular Chiltern Hills. Did you know that much of this local landscape has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty?
Chinnor to Bledlow Circular Walk
Chinnor is a 20-minute drive from our Haddenham site. Here you can park up and embark on Walk 1333. It follows part of the Ridgeway and Chiltern Way footpaths to provide a 9-mile circular walk with impressive views over the Chilterns. Taking walkers through traditional beach woodland and fields of native species, it showcases the beauty on our doorstep.
