11.5 mile circular from Ivinghoe village along the canal then up slippery paths onto Aldbury Nowers, easy bag from the Ridgeway, then along to Ivinghoe Beacon and down to the village, clear, sunny and surprisingly mild for Christmas Eve!DanTrig24/12/2018
Stage 8 and Final stage of the Ridgeway walk from Tring station to Cheddington with Lesley, this the 1st of 2 hills, i detoured off to visit. A short out and back through the woods. Several high points logged as summit contenders. Very busy today on the paths. We got stuck behind a group of women with dogs on long leads. Next hill would be Clipper Down.Dazingdale28/09/2018
Ambled from NT carpark to N, along Ridgeway then branched off L into woods. Accompanied part way by holiday hordes and dozens of Ridgeway Runners.Aye Jimmy25/08/2018
from road into wood and Ridgeway signs. Up through open trees to upper path and HP. Don't think that Patricia and I came this way on the Ridgeway in 1992.arranc28/06/2018
Solo.Dangerous Dave17/02/2018
From Northfield Rd. Good lay by. Pleasant woodland with good paths. Final few mts through unpathed woods. Not overgrown this time of year.Campbell Singer09/12/2017

From NT car park, ridgeway then into woods.rhalstead23/04/2017
From CP to north. Came within 20m of the deer that were in the bluebell wood. Primroses still out and bluebells just flowering. Little foliage to trees yet. Lovely spring stroll.KC15/04/2017
Parked to the SSW on Northfield Road then up bridleway then into woods.Dugswell206/03/2017
Great little ridge walk, sunny with bracing breeze. Easy meandering through woods with mum and dad to highest point. Ate Christmas sandwiches in the woods. Good view to Ivinghoe Beacon.Wycombe Wanderer26/12/2016
From north on Ridgeway. Entered wood just after information board using clear area under some large trees. Aimed for daylight on the ridge which kept wood open and easy. Found slight path along ridge.Took path almost to top. Just slight detour to locate top. Anyone's guess as to summit so I took it to be the centre point of the highest contour which also happened to be a slight clearing in the undergrowth. Only a few nettles right at the top. Enjoyable throughout.ijpowell02/09/2016
A bit of thrashing around, but having just read Bill Bryson's bear attack stories in 'A Walk in the Woods' on the Appalachain Trail I cant really complain about a few brambles and nettles. Imagine having to suddenly climb a tree in rapid fear - and if it worked -when would you dare come down?Chris Pearson08/06/2016
Parked in the car park at SP 95445 14925 and followed the Ridgeway National Path to Aldbury Nowers. Crisscrossed up the hill to surprise a small unsuspecting herd of Deer. Reconnected to the path just outside the golf course and completed a 3.5 miles loop back to the car. Lovely sunny day!bgalon25/03/2016
From the car park to the north.Swindon Bagger24/03/2016

From Manchester: First of Herts set: Parked as DesTaylor: Started along Ridgeway, but ventured E to find that the central track up the ridge really does exist.GordonAdshead12/08/2015
Walked from Tring Station along Icknield Way. Top is just off the route but pinpointing it is hard as there are several points of roughly equal height.trimarc230/07/2015
Did from the north after clipper down, couldn't find ridge, so blasted up through trees to top from the main ridgeway path to the west, on a compass bearing for the summit, searched around few different spots until I found one where ground looked lower as I rotated on the spot. Summit could be any where, but once satisfied with my top, headed down and back to car at car park to north of hill.pdantic04/07/2015
Layby on the road to the S - by the bird on the 1:50. Good paths. Summit could be anywhere.destaylor20/10/2014

Wooded summit.Adrian01/05/2010
Walk in the Chilterns with Mum; Ivinghoe Beacon car park - Pitstone Hill - Aldbury Nowers - Aldbury - Moneybury Hill - car. Possibly the first hill I climbed specifically because it was a P30!Mark Jackson19/11/2006
The Ridgeway path passes this top. The walk to the top is all trees - no view but a pit where someone has had a fire is at the summit.ChinnockCblank
