It was created by Chiltern District Council in 2000, as part of their Millennium celebrations ... Sadly, the Guide Book no longer seems to be available.'
However, if you Google "Chiltern Heritage Trail Millennium Walking Route" you should find a PDF Entry '1Mb - Chiltern District Council' which (I presume) links to a reproduction of the Guide Book.

'Starts in Ulverston and heads Northwards though the Lake District to finish in Carlisle.

'The Way's 65 miles run through the unspoilt countryside along the western side of Oxfordshire ... The idea behind the Way was to form a link between the Oxford Canal towpath, the Oxfordshire Way, the Thames Path and the Ridgeway.'

Walk around countryside familiar from the James Herriot TV series: 'The walk, unlike most multi-day walks, is circular; the traditional start and end point being in Aysgarth in the heart of Wensleydale – possibly the most famous of all Yorkshire Dales'.

Every stile, every gate, every change of direction is described so that you can be sure of walking the route with ease and confidence. The Gallery section of the site has photographs of many sections of the Way, so landmarks will seem like familiar friends when you look for them on the trail'.
Whitewebbs Park, Enfield
'The Hertfordshire Chain Walk is an 86-mile walk that crosses the county of Hertfordshire from south to north, starting on the northern edge of London and finishing in Cambridgeshire. Unlike the other long distance paths that I've walked, which either follow a straightforward linear route from A to B or else form a large "circle", this path consists of 15 circular walks of between 4 and 9 miles in length that are linked together to form a "chain" – hence the name Chain Walk. In fact there is a quarter mile gap between Walk 7 and Walk 8, so the Hertfordshire Chain Walk is also unusual in that it is a long distance footpath with a hole in the middle!'
