Hi all

So, this is the detail for the proposed country walk, to take place this Sunday (hope I haven't left it to late for people).

As this is the first time I've organised this, I've picked an easy walk - 3 out of 10! (Also, we may have a pregnant lady along) - and one easily reachable from central London - it's on the tube!It's in the second volume of the Time Out Book of Country Walks near London. It's walk no. 4, Chesham to Great Missenden. I propose to do the abbreviated version of this which is 5.9 miles long.

I suggest meeting at Baker Street at 10am - this Sunday, 29th March. I don't really know Baker Street Station so I'd suggest the platform of the Westbound Branch of the Metropolitan Line unless anyone knows a more convenient meeting spot.

The walk takes us from Chesham Station up through some lovely sounding countryside and woodland. There is a proposed lunch stop at The Pheasant Inn (which provides "inventive, though not cheap, food" - I don't know whether that is a threat or a promise! I'd be keen to try that but if there's a consensus we could bring some kind of picnicy snacks, bread, cheese, fruit etc.

I'll provide photocopies of the map and instructions for all of you, so we can all take a turn orienteering! Obviously, if it's going to piss it down, we'll give it a miss but hopefully the weather will hold.

So - let me know if you are in and what you fancy doing re. food. Going to email people this as well, in case I miss anyone.

I'm up for this, I personally like the idea of the Pheasant Inn but will go with whatever the general mood is.

I like the idea of this, but may be dead in a bin at that point, so don't wait up. I do have your number from a while back, so I'll ring that if I need directions or anything.

Sounds good, rail replacement service this weekend will make it a bit slower than usual to get there but not completely appalling. I'm hot with the inn and suggest meeting by the three screens at the top of the tube escalators and the bottom of the steps to the met line platforms as there's more than one.

On the off chance I don't turn up (I'll let you know) I'll tell you here that you'll need to switch trains at Chalfont and Latimer as well. I know the met line too well.
