Part of circular walk including Herts high point in Pavis Wood SW of Tring. From Herts 'peak', walked to opposite SW corner of Pavis Wood, exited west to an open area called The Crong. Turned south along road, then right path to Wendover Woods. Bucks high point is marked by a cairn stone (highest point of Chilterns) on eastern boundary of wood. No discernible 'peak' here but at least it is marked.timbo9910/07/2019

Decided to do this one after a skiing lesson in Milton Keynes. Upon exiting the car we were greeted by the sound of screaming kids! The cafe was shocking so opted for a quick visit to bag the summit then headed off to find a nice farm shop cafe just down the road.Jephcote8305/01/2019
The road through Wendover woods is a N-S one-way toll road with the entrance at SP 891101 and the exit at SP 898083. One can avoid the toll by parking for free near the exit gate at SP 897083 and walking, on the toll road, in a northerly direction to the summitIsbjorn10/11/2018

A very easy walk from Wendover woods car park. We made the trip more worthwhile by walking to nearby Aston hill and back.suzannerowcliffe02/11/2018
A hill walk in reverse - start at/ near summit then descend (via Coombe Hill trig to near golf club in this case). Woods quite pleasant. Hill bagged & car journey back 'up North' - similar to Gill's experience trying to get to M1 via Milton Keynes (following not brilliant signage) was purgatorial - possibly best to ignore motorway signs and use the A5 till north of town.ger31/10/2018

5th hill of 6 on Stage 7 of the Ridgeway walk with Lesley, having detoured off to climb Whiteleaf Hill, Pulpit Hill, Beacon Hill and Coombe Hill, this would be the longest detour of the trip, from the minor lane junction with Hengrove wood i took the lane then a footpath that traverses a large field leading to a permissive path through the woods then abandoning this for some fruiteless wandering. One of the vaguest Marilyns I would imagine. Boulder with plaque bagged but road through the woods seems higher but then is this natural? Back along the forest tracks and back to Lesley who had been patiently waiting for me...Dazingdale27/09/2018

Night hike from Berkhamsted that involved a bit of wild camping and a lot of sheltering from the rain. Had actually been within a few metres of the summit for a couple of hours, but too dark/wet to see it!DanHolme22/07/2017
The last Marilyn of the day, towards sunset on a blindingly hot day. Wendover Woods seems to be closed after 8.30 pm, so I parked just down the hill from the trig point path. The trig point doesn't seem to be very useful, as there isn't much of a view. Into the woods, on a track and then the forest road, and then found an overgrown, scritchy-scratchy path along the fence to the summit boulder. The easier way back was towards the car park to pick up the forest road. The main challenge with southern Marilyns is the driving, and not the walking. Heading home involved circumnavigating the roundabouts of Milton Keynes to get to the M1. Not nice.Gill08/07/2017

This part of a circular dog walk for me that a do a couple of evenings a week evenings. Had some trouble finding the summit marker in the dark even with a torch.Chilternfox08/10/2016
A return visit 23 years after I wrongly thought I had bagged the summit of hill, when in fact I guess I only went to the 261m road spot height which was then listed in George Bridges book as being the Bucks county summit location, and I had carried forward that myth in subsequently claiming the marilyn. Put that right today with a wander among the Sunday afternoon crowds in the woods-but as other have said -the high ground could be elsewhere than the rock - with the highest mapped spot height of 267m being on the exit road from the country park.Chris Pearson02/10/2016
A sea of happiness and joy on the faces of many children. Future Hill baggers maybe? Proper coffee in the cafe too.ijpowell01/09/2016

County top outing, This can be an easy one park in the main car park at wendover woods, once you turn into the woods the road goes on for about mile and a half just before you reach the main car park look out for a sign on the left saying Chilterns highest point and then its just a couple of minutes walk to a cairn with a plaque inset commemorating the queens silver jubilee.

I got ripped off for £1.60. It was a couple of hundred yards from the main car park to the summit boulder. I don't think it's the high point the ground to the south west was definitely higher. The only consolation was the bluebells.isabelle18/05/2015
Here for the British Radio Orienteering Champs... There is a free car park 100m short of the exit from the forest drive (this last stretch is two way so you can turn off the public road without having to traverse the one way system) and then it is about a km walk north. The land SW does look higher to me - so I took a wander and over the spot height point as well.M3WDD16/05/2015

Simon Carter 'Bagged' for the 2012 Morris Lubricants County Top Challenge forn the TCT.morrislube07/08/2012
Climbed up steep slope (Chilterns escarpment)through Wendover Woods from side of Halton Air base. Tried to park in car park indicated on OS map but Ministry of Defence had sold land to Belway and the bottom of the escarpmenr is now a new housing estate,- bloody planners! Summit area is now a country park with assault coyrses, picnic areas and car parks so OS map was a waste of space again. Fortunately there is signage to the highest point on the chilterns. Supposed summit is marked by a stone feature but it is obviously in the wrong place as land to the south-west is clearly higher. Mel MiddletonBHMC06/08/2012
The trig point is easy to find the summit less so. Bashed around in the woods for a while before deciding I must have been there. Nice area to have a bike ride around.TheWicken25/06/2012

Just off the Chiltern Peak path from the first main car park in Wendover Wood.jondudley05/05/2008
Solo. I went along a minor road and then paid £2 to go on paved tracks through forest (Aston Hill) to where there is a café. There were signs to the highest point of the Chilterns and a 0.75 mile hill top path. I thought the summit was at the end of the 0.75 mile path and walked the almost level path/track (with one or two investigations of the possible highest point off the track) until I reached a road, which is where cars exit the forest. Walked back to the car, realised my mistake and went to the supposed summit of Haddington Hill which was only about 100m away! There are stones and a plaque at the summit. It is difficult to say that this is the highest point as it is an almost level summit ridge.pwbellarby01/05/2008

Views? Not a chance. Big rock marking the highest point in the Chilterns? Yeah! The rock is quite hard to find, despite only being a few dozen yards into the woods from the car park - take your GPS. Easily reached from Ridgeway or Herts county top.wheresthepath02/01/2005
Ascended umpteen times, but first time solo from Wendover using the obvious paths slanting up the hillside. Summit took a bit of seeking out.NotReallyABagger07/11/2004

Another LDWA walk this time the Wendover Gap walk for this top.philhythe03/03/2002
Started climb from Wendover at the Grand Union Canal. From there went up the south east side of the hill to reach the car park. Found the highest point with aid of the GPS as the summit is very flat. Trig point is one mile to the north.garyhoney05/11/2000
A super cairn celebrating the highest point of the Chilterns and Bucks. Clearly there's higher ground nearby, Nobody uses the name Haddington Hill now and the area is called Wendover WoodsBazz01/01/2000

From Tring (Akeman Street). My log says 'satisfying to climb to the top of the Chilterns'. Out via Aston Hill, back via the Ridgeway and Pavis Wood- made a nice winter walk round a wide, dry valley. This is probably the only time I bothered to seek out the summit- had just bought brother Pete that Dawson book.pwheeler17/01/1999
Climbed up from car park near Aston Clinton with wife Nicola and 3 year old and 1 year old sons, Matthew and James. Highest point is a couple of mounds in woods to South East of the plaque. Have been up two more times since. Nearest Marilyn to home, next time I will take my GPS to get exact GR!pdantic16/01/1999
The first time to ascend this top was via Aston Hill before the Mountain Bike trails were added. There is a stone marking the top of the Chiltern Hills - but the area around appears higher.chinnock01/05/1998
With Andy. There is a marker stone declaring the 'Highest Point in the Chilterns'.mikejacobs01/09/1996
excellent autumnal walk.steven ruffles10/10/1994
From Sheffield after work bagging a few county tops en route to meet Julie at her parents near London before overnight ferry to France for a weeks climbing at Easter. Bagged the 261m spot height on the road as listed as Bucks county top by George Bridge and not the hidden in the woods higher true summit of Bucks and what subsequently became known as a marilyn. 23 years passed before I corrected this discrepency and visited the true summit-although even that exact point is in dispute!Chris Pearson08/04/1993
Probably 2003. Mooched around to make sure I visited the highest bit.summitsupblank
The Chiltern top. A car park - a nice café (busy though) and lovely woodland walks. The top is marked by a stone bearing the fact this is the highest point in the Chilterns. The walk up from any direction is nice.ChinnockCblank
