Checking out Chequers - 24 February 2008

A parliament of crows in front of the the PM's house

EllesboroughNot far from London is Chequers, the country home of the British Prime Minister. The Ridgeway walking path used to go almost past the front door but was rerouted, for security reasons, a few years ago and now the closest one gets is about 400m.

An entry gate at ChequersToday’s walk began from the estate church in Ellesborough; joined the Ridgeway to cross the Chequers’ estate then circled back through the foot of Coombe Hill to our starting point.

Our return journey took us through Princes Risborough, a charming town that deserves a return visit.
