It’s a little misleading to call this the Lee Walk, while the walk certainly takes you through this picturesque little village it also takes you through several others as well!

Unfortunately the entire surrounding area is currently under threat of destruction from HS2, ironic given its wonderful air of complete tranquility.

The Lee’s name is Anglo Saxon in origin and means ‘woodland clearing’.  Its mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was recorded as Lee and following the Norman Conquest, granted by William I to Odo, Bishop of Bayeux.

The walk takes in the surrounding woodlands and fields with relatively little climbing involved despite being located in the undulating Chilterns.  Despite so many country pubs closing in the area we’ve managed to find several to include on the route so be sure to stop and enjoy either something to eat or a pint or both!
