Burnham Beeches Explorer 2019

Burnham Beeches, Buckinghamshire, England

Easy - Loop

Set off from The Blackwood Arms pub at the start of this fast flat loop through Burnham Beeches. The oldest and largest tree in these woods is the Druid’s Oak, estimated at 800 years old. You will briefly skirt the northern edge of Burnham village, mentioned in the Domesday Book, although it is believed that settlements in this area date back to pre-Roman times. Pass through the hamlet of Egypt at about half-way around the ride, before turning south for a fast stretch along Park Lane and Dorney Wood Rd, returning to The Blackwood Arms in time for a well-earned pint.
