I can recomend the Cholesbury walk, we did this recently, and had a drink in the Rose and Crown on the way back, which is one of the best 16 pubs in Britain according to CAMRA. The beer was certainly excellently kept. The Full Moon is good as well although more of a food pub.

I know one of the people that compiled these and even (dare I say it) proof read a couple. Some of them walk through the fields behind my barn and I can thoroughly recommend them.

For those that haven't clicked to any specific walks, they are produced by a variety of different people and organisations in different formats. Some of them, including the Amersham one, have a lot of interesting detail about the architecture and natural features you will see on the walk (possibly some bits for the Wikipedia page, Paul?).

And if anyone spots any typos in the Chesham ones, we know who to tell. ;)

I wasn't checking for typos I was checking that the walk description was accurate! I'd like to say that it was my idea to add pubs etc to the walks, but it would be untrue. However, it's an excellent idea as I always have 20 tucked in my phone, just in case I get lost while out walking and want a drink/the toilet/food, as happened all too often when we first moved here!

Ah, a definitional discrepancy. :)

Certainly having pubs etc marked is a good idea, and 20 should buy you a pretty decent unplanned meal.

It started out as 5 because I felt bad if I needed the toilet and didn't have any money to buy a drink. I then realised that 5 ICE really wasn't enough money if I really got lost and needed to get a cab home or the car had run out of petrol and I didn't have my purse only my phone and so it became 20.

I've never needed it, but it's good to know that it's there.

Contingency planning, very wise, but I couldn't let my kids know it was there. :lol:
