Post Walk Refreshments - The Queens Head, Chesham, Fullers ESB
Without a doubt, linear routes connected by railway stations are presenting my favourite type of day walk.
This is a classic and a review of my Oyster account card should show that the 16 minute journey from Chesham to Rickmansworth cost only £1.60.
The walk back was free.
The Chess Valley walk follows the chalk bed Stream from almost the minute you leave Rickmansworth. It's crystal clear, shallow and loved by both dogs and eaters of water cress. All the historical details can be found by clicking the "Walk Inspiration" hyperlink above.
Here's the photos.

If you're desperate, you can divert for less than half a mile for the Red Lion for Chenies. Alternatively, keep following the Chess Valley signs and once in Chesham, you will be delivered to the Queens Head. It's literally built over the stream.

If I lived in Chesham, this would be my local.
