Why are there so few streams or rivers in the valleys of the Chiltern Hills? Why does the small stream at Hughenden dry up sometimes, even after heavy rain? The answers can be found in the chalk rock that underlies Hughenden Manor.
There are plenty of opportunities for some fresh air and exercise following one of our downloadable walks in the Chilterns Watlington Countryside. Admire the views at Coombe Hill, Pulpit Hill or Hill, or explore one of our longer walks. Alternatively, discover the Bradenham Estate or the woodland at Low Scrubs.
