Google map of the walk

 I went a few yards right to the end of this old lane, where a total of six paths or bridleways meet. I took the first path on the left - for the first few yards it was actually a bridleway (part of the South Bucks Way), but then I forked right on to a public footpath. This initially ran through Chisley Wood, with a field close by on my right. Further on it went through Goodmerhill Wood, eventually dropping downhill to a five-way junction of paths. Here I went straight on, gently uphill at first, through Fugsdon Wood until I reached a lane.

Approaching the five-way junction, where I went straight on (you can only just see there are paths going left and half-left, and to the right))

I walked less than a hundred yards left along the lane, then took a footpath on the other side. This went slightly uphill through a wood called High Scrubs. I soon came to a path T-junction, where I turned left. This path soon turned right, and continued through the wood to a path crossroads.  Here I went straight on, now on a bridleway between fences though initially still in woodland (I could have shortened the walk by turning left to reach Coombe Hill). Beyond the woods the bridleway dropped downhill with green field either side and a nice view ahead towards Wendover Woods. After passing a small wood on the left, the bridleway turned left (where a footpath went right) and ran between paddocks and then garden fences to reach the lane through Bacombe (unsurprisingly called Bacombe Lane).
