Chess Valley Walk

Pass through beautiful scenery and attractive villages on this 10 mile linear walk through the Chilterns.

A bit about us

The Chess Valley Walk is a linear 10 mile jaunt through the Chilterns following the River Chess from Rickmansworth to Chesham. Starting from either Chorleywood or Chalfont & Latimer station, the waymakred walk passes through the beautiful scenery of the Chess Valley as well as several attractive villages and at times gets close to the clear sparkling waters of the River Chess, one of the Chilterns' famed chalk streams.

The Chess Valley has some of the most scenic countryside views in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is a landscape rich in wildlife, with a long and fascinating history. You'll discover the site of a Roman farm-villa at Latimer, pass the 13th century Chenies Manor visited by Elizabeth I and see the watercress beds at Sarratt, the only commercial watercress farm left in the Chilterns.

When you're near the River Chess, keep an eye out for kingfishers, water voles, brown trout, orchids and dragonflies!
