#7: Chorleywood to Chesham

This 13.5km walk from Chesham Town Council website takes you through Carpenter’s Wood, on to Chenies and down into the Chess Valley It then heads back to Chesham via Flaunden, Ley Hill and Botley.

If you are worried about having to wait for one of the two trains an hour at Chesham, you could do the walk in the opposite direction (although Chesham has plenty of cafes, pubs and shops to keep you occupied if you do just miss a train).


Tips for walking from Chorleywood station

Chorleywood is an old village that expanded greatly with the coming of the railway. Although only a kilometre and a half from the M25, it has several attractions for walkers. One of those is Carpenter’s Wood, an ancient woodland, mainly of beech trees (which are typical of the Chilterns), only 5 minutes walk from the station.  

There is also a selection of shops and cafes, including a small supermarket, near the station - leave the platform for trains going away from London and walk down the hill. The shops are in Lower Road and Whitelands Avenue.

The station has toilets.

Walks from Chorleywood station

Chorleywood to Chesham - the 13.6km Chorleywood to Chesham 'Station to Station' walk takes you through the pleasant village of Chenies, across the Chess Valley and the villages of Flaunden and Ley Hill before going to Chesham (although as the train service at Chorleywood is much better, it makes more sense to start this walk at Chesham).

Chorleywood Circular - this is a fairly short (8km) circular walk put together by Richard Gower which goes into the Chess Valley before going back to the start.

Chess Valley Walks - you can use the Chess Valley path to walk to Chesham, Chalfont & Latimer or Rickmansworth stations.
