A two mile circular woodland walk through Burnham Beeches in Buckinghamshire. Burnham Beeches is 540 acres of ancient woodland which has been managed by the City of London Corporation since it purchased the site in 1880. Many of the trees are several hundred years old and the woodland is rich with wildlife.
The walk follows a mixture of tarmac paths and woodland paths, the latter of which are quite uneven can be very muddy after rain and in the winter months. There are a few climbs and descents throughout plus a couple of gates, but there are no stiles. One area of the woodland that you pass through is grazed by cattle so take care with dogs here. There is a cafe and toilets in the car park at the start of the walk. Approximate time one hour.
The walk starts from the Burnham Beeches cafe and car park on Lord Mayors Drive. From Junction 6 of the M4, take the A355 north through Slough towards Beaconsfield. Turn left onto Beeches Road and continue straight ahead at the crossroads into Lord Mayors Drive. The parking areas are on the left. Parking fees are compulsory at weekends and on Bank Holidays, and are voluntary at other times. Approximate post code SL2 3PS.
