I've not had a chance to write up the route details for this walk. This one starts from The Leathern Bottle in Lewknor. You can also start the walk from the northbound M40 bus stop. There are regular buses to Oxford, London, Heathrow and Gatwick airports. This route has a steady climb up to the top of the Chilterns escarpment and Cowleaze Wood. From there is descends back down to join the Ridgeway and then return back to Lewknor. The ups and downs are not as bad as you might think and its worth it for the views.
