The Wycombe Half Marathon
Heath End Road was once a very narrow lane which led out of the village and onto the heath. Lanes led from here down to Winchbottom and onto Handy Cross or down to Wycombe Marsh,
the landscape dominated by farms (Heath End, Hard to Find, Winchbottom, Handy Cross, Abbey Barn and Cobbles) and fields and heathland. It was not until the 1960s that the
road was directly linked to Daws Hill Lane although you could walk across the fields or take the circuitous route by Winchbottom Farm.
