With Haddington Hill, 10km walk from roadside at start of access road to Wendover WoodsRockdoctor17/05/2020
12k Circular walk taking in Haddington Hill and Pavis Wood. Nice easy walk, a lot of woodland and the occasional view of the rolling Chilterns Hills. Neither of the HPs are particularly of note.jarmin4518/01/2020
25km trail running from Wendover library car park - Haddington Hill, Pavis Wood & Coombe Hill. Nice run in from the woods shame about the top itself!Fionalevey08/11/2019
With Val. Walked from Wendover Woods after visiting he Marilyn top there. Good weather.mike.hoult02/10/2019
Combined Bucks and Herts tops. Arrived late so had to get a move on to avoid having the car being locked in the Wendover Woods car park. Quick and easy pair bagged within an hour of each other.acolling14/09/2019

Walking the County Tops of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. One way followed route suggested by Muir, but made it a circular for the way back.bgalon25/08/2019
Drive up.NormanW26/07/2019
Started from St Mary's Church in Wendover, followed Ridgeway path through Hale Wood, past Chivery Hall farm & mast and into Pavis Wood. Exiting NE corner of wood, high point is unmarked & innocuous some 75 metres south along Gadmore Lane. Taken to be where large oak forms part of hedge on eastern boundary of road.timbo9910/07/2019

Summit with Anita whilst staying in AldburyGhibli05/11/2018
Parked at the corner on the high point as a detour from a journey on the M1. We were going to wander over to Wendover Woods to tick off Buckinghamshire too, but lots of wind and not much time due to earlier traffic meant we decided to leave that for another trip.jkl12/10/2018
Final and 6th hill of the day on Stage 7 of the Ridgeway walk with Lesley, having detoured off to climb Whiteleaf Hill, Pulpit Hill, Beacon Hill, Coombe Hill and Wendover Woods, this was a very short wander up the road, into the field, with the highest point being near the Oak tree within the hedge itself. Lovely part of the Ridgeway to come was the walk through Tring Park. Tring station was our destination but it seemed to take an age to get to...Dazingdale27/09/2018
Layby at corner of road. Walked up road and wandered around field.mart079714/08/2018
Parked at the layby by the junction of Shire lane and Gadmore lane. Walked along the roadside verge to highest point and then also had a few minutes stroll along the Ridgeway. Perhaps the most uninspiring county summit so far, give me a walk up a hill and trig point summit any day!Gerry the Ranger04/08/2018
Warm, breezy, sunshine and cloud. Beautiful mixed forest.Wycombe Wanderer18/07/2018
Parked in the Wendover Woods building site which is a result of the ongoing refurbishment and after finding the brass plaque for Haddington hill I followed the directions in Jonny Muir's book to get to the uninspiring Pavis Wood.Buck20/06/2018
Cycled from home. Combined with a trip to Wendover Wood (Bucks county top).tsharp21/05/2018

5/8 Fifth one on Bad weather day so county tops bagging for the day, (Park Lane/Ashley Hill/Bowsey Hill/East Burnham Park/Pavis Wood/Whitehill/Bow Brickhill/The Slipe)Fergalh24/10/2015
A six and a half mile county top walk,This is easily reached when doing Buckinghamshire's high point. leave wendover woods car park by the exit (not the entrance like me) then turn left until you reach the Ridgeway path on the left hand side of the road and follow for a few miles, past a communications tower through pavis wood to the road which marks the boarder turn left on a sharp bend is Hertfordshires high point. I continued till I reached the junction just to be sureWAYNE ROWLETT09/08/2015
Move along please, nothing to see here...rlee504011/07/2015

Walked to this from Wendover woods along a part of the ancient walkway The Ridgeway.A nice easy walk through woodland but leaving the woods the highest point is a disappointing country lane but we have done it.Tony and Karen11/06/2015
Technically I did not have to get out of the car for this one - but I had a walk around - very nice hot and sunny spring afternoon. It would be a very peaceful spot - no other cars in 40 minutes but a plane flies over every 5.M3WDD16/05/2015
