The stile free circular Little Marlow Water and Woods walks will introduce you to the beautiful countryside of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which lies just north west of London, easily reached on a short train journey.
Enjoy the traditional pleasures of river and rolling countryside which the railway opened up for 19th Century London society. From the river, busy with boats, the walk also enjoys the abundant birdlife at the Spade Oak Lake.
You will also be rewarded with panoramic views of the Thames Valley, well managed woodland and fascinating archaeology. And there’s ample opportunity for refreshment at the middle or end of your journey.
For more walks and rides in the Chilterns see the Chilterns AONB website.
