Journey from Quainton Road:

Quainton Road on Met & GC Joint to Aylesbury Joint Station, followed by a 15 min brisk walk across town. Then on the London and North Western towards Cheddington, second station. Possible between 1868 and 1953.
Note that in 1922 and 1938 there was no Sunday service on the line from Aylesbury to Cheddington, to do this journey required a circular route via Verney Junction and Bletchley, with several hours wait at Verney Junction - probably quicker to walk from Aylesbury!

13 miles by rail (ex walking section)
15.9 miles by road

Cheddington described as a Junction with the LNWR and the Aylesbury branch
