The 7 Windmill Route

The windmill route

I designed this l route to go pass 7 of the windmills in the area starting and ending in Great Missenden. Since the route is circular you could start the cycle anywhere on the route. The 7 Windmills are all restored and although there are other locations that have windmills, I’ve ignored them as they either just towers  or have been converted
