Pete's Walks- Local walks around Kensworth

These are mainly walks I have done numerous times in and around the village of Kensworth where I live. Kensworth is towards the north-eastern end of the Chilterns, close to Dunstable Downs, Whipsnade Zoo and Ivinghoe Beacon.

The distances are those given by Google Maps, and are probably slightly inaccurate. I apologise if these pages are very slow to load.

WARNING: When I originally started writing up these walks, I didn't really intend them to be used as 'route descriptions' for other people to follow. However I am aware that a few people are using them that way, and I now try to make sure my descriptions give enough route details so that they can be followed. Unfortunately I have a dreadful tendency to get 'left' and 'right' confused. So if you want to try any of these walks yourself, I very strongly recommend that you try to follow the route description on a map first. If you do find (or think you find) any mistakes please let me know by email  and I will make any corrections as soon as I can (usually I check emails every day).

The lines are not intended to show the actual routes of the paths, they generally just link the two most distant points the path visits, to give a rough idea of where the path goes. If you select a line and click on the associated link it will take you to the relevant page of my web site, where you will find a link to a proper map of the route.
