October 2007 - Woodland walks in the Chilterns

Colourful autumn leavesView from Whiteleaf Hill over the crossWhy not make the most of the good weather and go for a woodland walk in the Chilterns? 

The current spell of dry weather means that autumn leaves are colouring-up beautifully and most trees still have their leaves.

There are plenty of places to get out and about for a walk at this time of year.  Woodlands with good public access include the Forestry Commission's Wendover Woods, the National Trust's Coombe Hill and nearby County Council's Bacombe Hill and and the County Council's Whiteleaf Hill - all with spectacular views across the Vale of Aylesbury.
