Berryfields to Buckingham Park, Aylesbury
The new St Peter’s Greenway, linking Buckingham Park to Berryfields, was opened in September 2022 allowing people to follow a traffic free greenway all the way to Aylesbury Vale Parkway Station and Waddesdon. The official opening was on 12th October.
The path crosses the Quarrendon Historic lands owned by the Buckinghamshire Conservation Trust who have been greatly supportive. The construction of this 1.8 kilometer long path was carried out by Jack Hazell and his team over just 4 weeks. The work was managed by Greenways and Cycleroutes for Buckinghamshire Council who funded all the work.
The new route is highlighted below. Click here for the western-end Google Maps location.
If you are local to the area do keep a good watch over the work to see how a beautiful path has been pieced together. The Greenway will connect up extensive networks of local routes at each end so we anticipate that it will be well used now that it is open.

Snipping expertly through the ribbon, Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet Member for Transport, Steve Broadbent said: “Before the opening of this Greenway, you only had the choice of using the shared path running next to Martin Dalby Way – which is a busy road – or using a path by the River Thame which was prone to flooding. Now this wide path with its hard standing and gentle gradient is a much more attractive and accessible proposition for walking, cycling, and wheeling.”
Steve Broadbent added “Creating these greenways makes it easy and enjoyable for people to walk and cycle which is great for both mental and physical health. It also makes it easier for people to make low carbon journeys by active travel, train and bus.”
Many thanks to Richard Crouch who produced this wonderful drone video of the path starting from the Eastern end.
