Hiking in an unknown wood in the Chiltern Hills

Chiltern Hills – I had hiked a neighbouring woodland and wild camped there too. I had always known there was another wood over the other side, but I had never been there.

The suspense was too much for too long, and so, I decided to visit, put on my boots and get hiking this unknown wood in the Chiltern Hills. I still can’t find its name and have no idea what this “unknown wood” is called.

It’s an absolutely beautiful place in the winter and I can just imagine what it’s like in the spring bloom and autumn colours.
