SEER GREEN VILLAGE WALKS
As I live in the centre of the village and have a dog that takes me for a walk twice a day, I have become very familiar with the many walks, which are available in the area. No need to get the car out - pleasant walks can be found north, south, east or west.
North – take the footpath across Howard Road and Howard Crescent, follow footpaths 12 and 8 to Hodgemoor Woods, and if you’re feeling really energetic, to Chalfont St Giles
South - via Farmers way to Long Grove Wood, cross over Long Grove, follow the footpath down to Longbottom Lane, cross the road and continue along the footpath on Beaconsfield Golf Club and back to Seer Green via School Lane.
East – take footpath 17 towards the nearby village of Jordans. This walk can be a short stroll through Green Wood or Crutches Wood and back again. If you want a lengthier walk, turn north at the junction with Wilton lane, cross over Twitchells Lane and walk across the fields towards SSVC and return via the public footpath round Oaklands Park Golf Club to Butlers Cross and home by footpath 16.
West – walk along Orchard road to Bottom Lane, take the footpath across the field to Blue Close Wood. Follow the path to the Amersham Road (A355), cross over and follow the footpath to Coleshill.
This short article does not attempt to give precise details of the various walks but merely to whet your appetite for the countryside around Seer Green. The footpath map can be downloaded above or obtained from the Parish Clerk which details the public footpaths around the village, there are also many books describing walks in the Chilterns in more detail. Some of them also refer to local hostelries should you wish to wet your whistle before or after your walk, or en route. There are, for instance, two very good pubs in the village, the Jolly Cricketers and the Three Horseshoes, and the White Hart at Three Households is not far from Hodgemoor Woods. Whilst Jordans is a dry village, you can always do a detour to one of the many pubs in Chalfont St Giles, and The Red Lion in Coleshill gives a great welcome to walkers. There is also a good selection of pubs in Beaconsfield.
