Named discs, with Bucks swanNorth Bucks Way

55 km / 34 miles

Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes
The North Bucks Way was set up by the Ramblers Association in 1972. A walk from the Ridgeway at Chequers Nature Reserve to the county boundary at Pulpit Hill Nature Reserve crossing the Vale of Aylesbury and taking in a number of villages. It connects with the Cross Bucks Way at Addington. At Wolverton the waymarked Grafton Way (13 miles and on OS mapping) leads to Greens Norton to join with the Knightley Way (see Nene Way). The Tramway Trail (6 miles) provides an alternative connection between Quainton and Waddesdon, the route taking to the Brill Tramway and the grounds of Waddesdon Manor. The Ouse Valley Walk (13 miles) follows the River Great Ouse between Buckingham and Milton Keynes and connects with the North Bucks Way at Iron Viaduct. See Aylesbury Ring and Oxfordshire Way.
