Warm and windy autumn day for our Wendover walk, trees just on the turn, lovely views. When we reached the (ugly) Boer War monument on Combe Hill we decided to extend the walk by a couple of miles so that it would include a pub lunch stop. Not just any old pub but the Plough at Cadsden where Cameron sometimes drinks.
We passed Chequers which looks a very desirable residence . The only thing wrong with our redesigned walk was that it included half a mile on a road, but another time that could be avoided. There were six of us plus Liz from the BMC who was staying nearby and regaled us with stories of researching new climbs in Kirghizstan, piloted by army helicopters and walking 17 hour days.
