Chiltern Way 9: Cow Roast to Chalk Hill
Anyone who watched the impressive Thames Jubilee Pageant, on the Sunday, would see that it wasn’t the best day to be out and about. After taking a drenching the day before, I chose not to put myself through the rinse cycle on the next leg of the Chiltern Way, and stayed in to watch the royal procession. Next day, though, I was back at Cow Roast, on the Grand Union Canal, a brighter day promised.
The bus stop was some hundred metres down on my right, next to the White Lion pub. What struck me with this little hamlet was the stench of the local sewer works. The lasting memory I will have of this point will be the foul whiff of a person with gingivitis! I was so pleased when the bus whisked me away!
