Such a contrast to the previous walk! Last weekend we passed a tiny dwelling from my past; today we passed something much grander, somewhere I've never been before: Chequers.

Although the house remains largely hidden from view, its presence in the countryside is clear. A kilometre or so away we started seeing the ominous signs: "Trespass on this site is a criminal offence". Children on leads, then!

Most of the rest of the walk was through woodland, with the bluebells out in force.

We ended in Wendover, which looks to be a lovely town. Once again the decision to stop was pragmatic rather than because we didn't have the energy to continue. Hopefully we'll be back tomorrow, to complete the remainder of the Trail in one day and get a bus back to the car without having to resort to taxis.
