Below are photographs taken on Paul Connolly's

walk from Princes Risborough on 16 October 2011

by our most prolific photographer Sheila Bravin

Walkers gather at Princes Risborough from the

Chiltern Railway from London Marylebone

Please note the blue skies and sunglasses on

this wonderful October day

The map of the area provides some information

before setting off

Countryside immediate with this lovely thatched cottage


This is for real and someone lives there


The idyllic gardens of cottages

Pause to contemplate the scene

So relaxing to ramble under a canopy of trees

The local Church at Princes Risborough


Sharing the pathway with cyclists can be alarming!!




An old railway crossing still functioning





Horses coated for the autumn chill



A well marked trail to follow.  Note the name

"Sustrans".  They received £80 million from the

first round of lottery allocations in order to raise

the standard of walkways and get people active. 

They spent much of it converting footpaths into cycle ways.


Interesting sculptured waymark signs along the way





Mmmmm. chubby sheep grazing in the meadow.  Lamb for lunch??


A varied walk for interest and leisure


That name "Sustrans" again



Horse riders well groomed and friendly



Pause for water and Peace Prayer of St Francis


All enjoying the day so far


Photographer gets into the frame




Passing of a road and view of a horse-friendly pub




Lots on offer for the hungry rambler


Lunch will be soon at Thame, and that name "Sustrans" appears again




The Cross Keys in Thame welcomed ramblers

with their own sandwiches, once the order of

the day but a rarity nowadays.


But the foodie ramblers plough through Thame for a bought lunch


Thame is an ancient town, proud of its literary and artistic heritage



Very interesting local shops


Reasons to come back on a day trip





The wonderful lunch stop at last!!



The afternoon walk passed through the ancient Churchyard on the way out of Thame



Continuing out of Thame on the way to Haddenham





Accross the stiles and through the fields






The inspiring sounds of water rushing over stones



Careful distance from our bovine friends


Which root vegetable is this?


Field upon field and and bridges to cross




Roads to cross too and our photographer got a rare photo of the normally camera shy leader




The weather graces the last leg of the journey





The footpath is not immediately obvious


There is a lot growing here but what is it?


Autumn sun casts ramblers' shadows on the fields




Still some flowering and seeding going on.


Some long bamboo grass



A lovely English village, Haddenham









A glider from nearby airfield flies over Haddenham Station


Prepare to travel


And a welcome train arrives for the journey home


All aboard and away we go!!!





Apart from a few taken in the Pub the photographs of this walk are of the countryside and woodland through which the walk passed.

The lunch stop was at the Cock - Broom and the tea stop at Henlow.  I think these photos were at the lunch stop.
