Wendover is in
the Metropolitan Green Belt and Chilterns Area of Outstanding
Natural Beauty. It offers much to both local people and visitors
with the countryside around being very popular with walkers,
cyclists and horse riders.
Apart from the Ridgeway Path,
the National Trail that passes down the main High Street of
Wendover, there are 33 miles of public rights of way and bridleways
criss-crossing the parish.
These paths will take you over the open chalk downland of Coombe
Hill with its impressive monument to the Buckinghamshire men
who died in the Boer War, or to the shaded woods on Boddington
Hill belonging to Forest Enterprise. Here the visitor can enjoy
specially prepared cycle routes, all ability walks, barbecue
sites as well as play areas for the children.
Walk to the pretty hamlet of
Dunsmore in the spring and enjoy the carpet of bluebells, or
simply spend a leisurely afternoon strolling around Wendover
taking in the 13th Century Parish Church of St Mary, Heron Path,
and the green parkland of the Witchell.
