The Chilterns is defined by its geology, particularly its chalk. Nowhere is the geological richness of the Chilterns more in evidence than on this walk. Richness in terms of the mixture of flower rich grassland, high forest and agricultural land, and in terms of the commercial value of the underlying chalk as a natural resource.
