Reminder- SWSW walk on 7th November
- Sarah and John will be taking us around Burnham Beeches this Sunday. Autumn
is the best time for this walk as the colours are spectacular, especially
this year due to the weather conditions over the last few months. Burnham
Beeches is described as one of the finest woodland tracts in England, the
remnants of a wide forest that once covered the whole of Buckinghamshire.
The average age of the trees is 400yrs, with some in excess of 800 yrs. So
forget about New England in the Fall, rather think of Burnham Beeches in
The walk is about 5 miles long and passes primarily through woodlands and
into the fields beyond via a reservoir and passing Dorney Wood house. The
midpoint stop is beside the small brick and flint church of St Annes,
Littleworth Common. Paths are largely laid out and dogs on leads would be
ok. There are 3 stiles only. Lunch will either be at the café or there are
other pubs nearby (eg the Jolly Woodman off Littleworth common )
Meet in the main car park (which is signed with the brown info signs from
the A355), complete with a café and toilets (which should be open from 10)
near Farnham Common, off Beeches Road into Lord Mayors Drive SL2 3PR.
Parking is via donation.
