Please come and join us on this walk around part of the ancient Parish of Chesham as we celebrate the old custom of Beating the Bounds.

The first section of the walk will make its way to Tylers Hill and then follow the old parish boundary as it winds its way back to Chesham. The route will take us through some beautiful Chiltern scenery and alongside the lovely River Chess.
