Pete's Walks - Walks Diary 2019

These are in reverse chronological order, with the most recent walk at the top .'Local' means the walk is within a few miles of my home in Kensworth, and so most of these could also come under the heading 'Chiltern Hills'.

The distances and times given are usually only very rough estimates!

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 - so I should point out that I don't always give enough details in the written descriptions for them to be used that way. Also, 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 on a map first.  The Google Map I provide with each walk may be of some help with navigation. 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).
