From Chinnor we will venture up into the Chiltern Hills to join The Deep Time Walk in Hedgerley Woods to learn about the creation of the Earth and history of all beings inhabiting it.

After a pause to enjoy the amphitheatre also created by the HW Trust we will head to BBOWTs Yoesden Nature Reserve between Radnage and Bledlow Ridge to enjoy the chalk grassland flowers and hopefully butterflies of the season. Our circular route takes us on the Chiltern Way back to Chinnor with a few other stops of interest.
