My fourth and final day of checking the paths in Piddington and Wheeler End parish was on 26 August, and I walked in the north-west part of the parish.
I set off from the road at the bottom of Chipps Hill, following the bridleway to the boundary with Stokenchurch parish. Here I reckoned the definitive path was on the other side of the boundary hedge than where it was on the ground so I have reported this.
I headed north through the woods; to make a reasonable circular walk without a long trek along the A40 I went into Stokenchurch parish to the west and thence through the Chiltern Society’s Bottom Wood in Radnage. This is a pleasant and interesting walk and I must go back in the spring when the orchids are flowering.
I returned to Piddington on a bridleway which brought me out at Ham Farm, a trouble-free walk to end the year’s checking. Now I must follow up the outstanding problems. I’ll be back next year.
