Buckinghamshire Walk – August 2015

Head to the market town of Chesham for a walk in the rolling Chiltern Hills of the Chess Valley. And if you think you recognise parts of the town, Chesham has starred in a number of TV and film productions, including Inspector Morse, Midsomer Murders and, most recently, in The Imitation Game (2014), where Church Street appears as Alan Turing’s lodging house in Bletchley. The walk also passes through Lowndes Park, donated to the town in 1953, Chesham Moor and the hamlet of Tyler’s Hill. After the walk call in at the small museum to learn more about the town; published in the August 2015 issue of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Life.
