|Part of circuit from Coombe Hill. Nice hill and good viewpoint.||JohnIvor||27/08/2019|
|With JSG on leg of walk from Chequers to Wendover. Breezy on top with excellent views all around including cruising red kites - cracking little hill well worth the effort.||JOHNS||17/08/2019|
|As part of National Trust walk around Chequers, up and down several elevations. This is a nice little peak - very steep but a short burst of just a few minutes. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/chilterns-countryside/trails/coombe-hill-and-chequers-trail||WendyWozEre||14/07/2019|
|Picked up on a short boot fit test walk - they didnt fit...||atreides7887||19/05/2019|
|Parked at start of lane to S of Church. Followed footpath up through woods (steps)and via open gate up to top. Went back down ridge to N over the curious style announcing no access. Splendid little hill.||GordonAdshead||10/05/2019|
|Walk from Princes Risborough to Wendover Woods. Stopped for a break at the summit near to the security camera. Kites circling about 10m overhead. Lovely.||jedthehumanoid||01/03/2019|
|Walked straight up the pasture from Ellesborough church then over the little stile to the summit. A bagging round along the Chiltern scarp with Carol and the dogs. Beacon Hill (Ellesborough); Pulpit Hill; Whiteleaf Hill; Beacon Hill (Aston Rowant). Mild, dry, patchy sun.||Skip||25/01/2019|
|Torchlight procession to the summit with around 100 geocachers as part of a side event for the winter geolympix||The old soldier||26/10/2018|
|Climbed it during an evening Beacon walk by torchlight with other geocachers||ey up me duck||26/10/2018|
|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, interesting bagging this summit went through open gate onto proper top and found a camera watching us on the summit while being on the wrong side of the no unauthorised access sign we descended rapidly. After headed home via Waddesdon Hill and Quainton Hill. Lovely clear summery weather.||DanTrig||09/10/2018|
|3rd hill of 6 on Stage 7 of the Ridgeway walk with Lesley, having detoured to climb Whiteleaf Hill and Pulpit Hill, this out and back was only a bit further. Path from Ridgeway into woods and out then over to gate into field and a steep climb up. Fantastic views from and to this hill, in particular from Coombe Hill...This was my 11th Beacon Hill out of 46 in the country.||Dazingdale||27/09/2018|
|From Pulpit Hill, tracks through wood and fields to fine looking little hill from this side. Summit just outside fenced-off pit with steps leading down to... what?||Aye Jimmy||01/09/2018|
|Walked across from Coombe Hill, then onto Pulpit Hill.||mart0797||14/08/2018|
|Took a short cut through a man's garden, who directed me to find the path. Direct trudge over grass to visible top and further to cross wire fence at top.||arranc||29/06/2018|
|Solo. Straight up from church. Low barbed wire fence with convenient stile to help you over, despite trespass signs!||Dangerous Dave||18/02/2018|
|Nice climb up a fine hill, from the lay by to the N & then via the PROW & onto the access land. CCTV camera has now gone, but the warning sign remains!!||DanMaisieBex||12/02/2018|
|From Pulpit Hill. Through open gate in SW corner of field by Ridgeway Path to summit. Climbed over stile and saw it had a sign telling people to keep out. Too late. Walked along to end of ridge, the mist making the view into Ellesborough Warren quite dramatic. Fine hill for these parts - arguably the finest. Retraced steps to Hobb's Hill car park, picked mum and dad up from Ellesborough.||Wycombe Wanderer||23/12/2017|
|From Pulpit Hill. Very pleasant walk. Not aware of any security restrictions so just walked straight up to the top. Interesting feature at the summit but I dare not reveal state secrets..||Campbell Singer||09/12/2017|
|With NS and Al. From Coombe Hill. Lovely hill, great views, beautiful day. Opted not to get to the true summit, it's good enough for me that my eyeline was clearly above the highest point a few feet away.||Owen B||08/10/2017|
|From Whiteleaf cp, out by delightful Ridgeway fp, back by the dull but easier riders' alternative- Pulpit Hill on way back.||pwheeler||25/08/2017|
|Walked over from the Plough at Cadsden. Think the PM might have more to worry about at the moment than a hillbagger nipping 50ft into the grounds.||rhalstead||17/06/2017|
|I parked to the S, over Pulpit Hill, then over to Beacon Hill, through the Box Wood. Great little hill, with amazing views all around, the HP is just over the fence into the no go area, but a quick nip seemed OK to me, the CCTV post is there but lacking the camera. views to Chequers too.||griefmiester||01/06/2017|
|Circuit from Wendover via Coombe Hill, Whiteleaf Hill, Pulpit Hill and Beacon Hill||rjf35||01/04/2017|
|4hr 30 walk between Saunderton and Little Kimble stations over 6 Tumps. Easy climb from ROW to NW (after passage from S through box woodland). Probably the best hill in East Anglia with a shapely profile and panoramic views. Even the approach from the church is easy!||Mark Jackson||13/06/2016|
|It would appear to technically be a criminal offence to visit this summit - all be it just the last 4 steps ! A lovely legal grassy path climbs steeply up open access land up the front (north) of this lovely shapely hill. If however you step over the convenient stile(with no sign saying not to) for the final 4 steps to the summit (once the bull which may be standing there has ambled away) then you have committed a criminal offence under Section 18 of the Prevention of Serious Offences Act 2007. This is according to a small sign attached further down slope on the fence you have crossed forbidding entry and replicated at intervals.This is understandably to keep people away from Chequers below - however a low fence,inviting stile and lack of keep out signs on this likely line of approach is not the best security. The security camera has also gone from the tall metal pole before the stile. Perhaps the bull is part of the deterrent? Climbed in shorts & shirtless.||Chris Pearson||08/06/2016|
|From the North, what a nice hill with a good ascent and views.
Small stile assists getting over fence to HP.
My last Bucks tump.||PeterD||26/05/2016|
|Did this walk:
|Saw security camera at top and decided not to go up. Will attempt again now that I can see access is permitted.||r.ashwell||28/03/2016|
|You'll be watched by the Chequers security camera on the summit whilst climbing the hill on the clear path from the north.||Swindon Bagger||24/03/2016|
|Pleasant walk across from Pulpit Hill. Hill may have the best profile of the Bucks hills. CCTV and light at top due to overlooking Chequers, guess it's not monitored unless PM in residence - he's too busy to relax here at the moment!||jonglew||10/03/2016|
|Security camera at top appeared to be looking other way. Near to Chequers. Hill has a good profile. Easy||trimarc2||07/07/2015|
|Parked easily SSE of Pulpit Hill. Very pleasant 109330, 109329, 109344. No major difficulties.||destaylor||06/12/2013|
|With Des. Tall surveillance camera observed our departure but the crack defence forces remained well camouflaged.||Smudge||06/12/2013|
|Lovely hill, small resr, CCTV? (near/overlooks Chequers).||RHW||01/12/2012|
|Date guessed, have been up here a few times, usually in a nice little circuit also including the monument on Coombe Hill. Lovely hill, good views, great for kite flying according to the chap we met up here once!||wheresthepath||01/06/2006|
|With Tony Gordon.||zoob||20/02/1994|
|This hill is a grassy one overlooking Chequers.
So we didn't linger.
There is a metal lid of some sorts near the top.
There is a fence around the summit area.||ChinnockC||blank|
