Autumn in Wendover Woods
Day Walk
Alan 07957 438153
This well known circular route through the woods and surrounding countryside is undulating with several steep climbs and descents. The walk route takes us past Aston Hill Place, Drayton Manor, Pavis Wood, Hastoe, and an Iron Age fort Embankment at Cholesbury (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholesbury).  After a visit to the green and the Full Moon pub we return to the woods past Hale Farm.  There is a short cut available from Pavis wood reducing the walk to about five miles.
