Fancy a walk then?
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Days out features here.
The posts I like writing most are the ones that get me excited to try something different myself. Having researched lots of lovely pubs with circular walks attached, I wanted to go and try one too, so off we went a few weeks ago, the whole Muddy lot of us, for the three village walk that took in Fingest, Skirmett and Turville in a glorious, sun-drenched circle.
It took us longer than expected – just shy of two hours – and the youngest Muddy was almost delirious with hunger and tiredness when we arrived at The Chequers for lunch, but it really was the most beautiful walk, even in winter. We saw deer running across the fields, red kites of course, and possibly the happiest sheep in England, grazing in these peaceful meadows. Fingest and Turville in particular are lovely villages, and on our particular walk it involved walking through two sets of woods and plenty of hills with stunning views at the summit.
I bumped into several Muddy readers out trying the same walk on my recommendation, which was fantastic to see, and I hope others of you attempted some of the others on the list (if so, please let me know how you got on!).
I won’t bore you with the minute details of our walk, but here are some pics of the day, and also the map we used which was entirely accurate and easy to follow.
If you’d like to see some of the other stride-and-scoff pubs I suggested, take a look here, and if you have any suggestions to add to the list, I’d love to hear them.
