From car park to top and memorial.Bramley28/01/2020
25km trail running from Wendover library car park - Haddington Hill, Pavis Wood & Coombe Hill. Pitch black which made the monument at the top all the spookier.Fionalevey08/11/2019
I walked over the summit on my way to the monument.Alancache17/10/2019
Easy enjoyable walk from Wendover Station with PJBtrimarc230/08/2019
Enticed on this walk by Trimarc2 with promise of cake. And when we got cake some time later in Wendover it was all worthwhile in Rumseys Chocolaterier130/08/2019

Quick out and back from Wendover station after work on a Friday evening. Excellent views from the top of this one, including Chequers if you follow the Ridgeway a bit further to the south-west.Richard14/06/2019
Ridgeway Tring to Princes Risborough - somewhat overcast day but great to see an incredible number of red kites and buzzards hovering over the ridgejedthehumanoid12/01/2019
From CP to SE. With B and R.jenx09/12/2018
8.6 mile circular around the forests of the Chilterns, parked Ellesborough, followed footpath to Coombe Hill (3rd time bagged), then a very round-about way to Pulpit Hill and Beacon Hill all on very good paths mainly long distance trails, the trig on Coombe Hill is sadly now destroyed. After headed home via Waddesdon Hill and Quainton Hill. Lovely clear summery weather.DanTrig09/10/2018
4th hill of 6 on the Ridgeway walk with Lesley, having detoured to climb Whiteleaf Hill, Pulpit Hill and Beacon Hill, this one was actually very close to the Ridgeway trail itself, however I still did and out and back from a bench to the rather vague high ground indicated. Wonderful views that include Beacon Hill on a lovely late sunny day. Wendover Woods would be my next and longest disappearance of the day!Dazingdale27/09/2018
With Eoin West. Parked opposite the Golf Club House and ascended steep foot path directly to the South Africa Monument. Great views including sight of Chequers. Took footpath making east then followed sunken bridleway back to our start. Great lunch break stroll.Pete West15/09/2018

The background on the web to each of the fallen men of Bucks listed on the memorial who died during the 2nd Boer War in South Africa makes sombre and insightful reading. http://www.roll-of-honour.com/Buckinghamshire/CoombeHillBoerWar.html. The Ridgeway path opening ceremony was held on here in 1973 and there is a public information film made at the time about it (on You tube ) by the Countryside Commision with galloping highwaymen and maidens driving sheep - very much an advert 'of its time.'Chris Pearson08/06/2016
