Totternhoe Lanes disability-friendly countryside site
Totternhoe Lanes is a beautiful area to explore for wildlife, history and landscape. Much of the area consists of old, worked-out chalk quarries, now overflowing with chalk grassland flowers, butterflies, birds and other wildlife. The whole area can be accessed through a network of wide lanes, originally used by the quarry workers for access.
In the summer the grassland blooms with wildflowers and these attract butterflies and other insects.
Some of the lanes are surfaced and form part of the Sustrans national cycle network and are accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Some of the lanes have vehicle access gates across but are still accessible to the side. The map shows types of paths, slopes, etc. to help you decide which paths are suitable for you.
