Cross Bucks Way


Despite its name, this path actually begins in Linslade in Bedfordshire and finishes at Stratton Audley in Oxfordshire. That said, for most of its length it passes through the picturesque countryside of North Buckinghamshire. Highlights include the Grand Union Canal, the market town of Winslow and the church in Hillesden, where the door still has bullet holes from when it was attacked during the English Civil War.
