At 1000 we venture out by footpaths to Marlow Common from the Royal Oak, Bovingdon Green.

Enjoy an illustrated talk on the troops, their camp and their activities before exploring the preserved WW1 practice trenches. Soak up the magic of these beautiful beech woods, then stroll back to the pub for a drink or lunch if you fancy.
