Summary: The Outer Aylesbury Ring (OAR), developed by Aylesbury and District Ramblers, was officially launched on 18 May 2013. The OAR showcases the countryside and villages of the panoramic Vale of Aylesbury and the edge of the Chiltern Hills by taking advantage of higher ground on the outside of Aylesbury and District Ramblers' other circular route, the 32-mile Aylesbury Ring. Starting from the edge of Wendover, a few minutes walk from the station, the route heads up towards the Hale through Wendover Woods to descend back down Aston Hill to the Wendover arm of the Grand Union Canal. It follows the canal and paths around the Tring reservoirs to Marsworth, where it continues along the Grand Union Canal as far as Horton Lock, before heading towards Mentmore and Ledburn to Wing. It then goes north west to the ridge that that heads across to Cublington and on Creslow Ridge to Whitchurch. Leaving Whitchurch it heads out through Oving to North Marston and on via Hogshaw and Quainton Hill to Quainton and then to Waddesdon. It skirts Waddesdon Manor grounds and Lodge Hill to Westcott and east around the former site of Westcott airfield to reach Ashendon. It heads to Chearsley, crossing the River Thame and going down through Haddenham to Aston Sandford. It then continues south east passing Owlswick and through Longwick and Princes Risborough to join the Ridgeway up to Whiteleaf Hill. From here it follows the edge of the Chilterns, mainly not using the Ridgeway's route, to Cadsden and on to Ellesborough and returns to Wendover via the Boer War Monument on Coombe Hill.
