Parked opposite Wood Lodge entrance on Church Road with plan to access trig directly from SW. Turns out private access to golf course so ended up with clockwise circumnavigation Duchess golf course. Very pleasant stroll.SteveSmith20/06/2020
Foot of evergreen over BWF near trig point. Lovely woods.maclrc18/01/2020
With NS. Circular starting in the free car park at Woburn. Good paths through the woods to Aspley Heath, then WSW towards the golf course. Crossed the barbed wire fence onto the edge of the golf course to the prominent pine tree by the edge of the woods which appears to be the highest point. The trig is on the path side of the barbed wire fence (ie. not the golf course side) only a few metres from the path. Then a pleasant stroll back past the golf club, Hundreds Farm and Horsemoor Farm, and an excellent coffee and mince pie at Flootes. Very pleasant way to pass a surprisingly nice afternoon after the previous day's storm.Owen B03/11/2019
Parked at end of RoW to W - a couple of spaces to pull in. Followed RoW and ended up on mountain bike tracks which led to trig. HP seemed to be over fence on other side of fairway to S.Wheelsy09/06/2019
On own. Parking area at top of road near church. Followed paths through woods to trig point next to rhododendrons. No need to go onto Woburn golf course. Seems a popular area for mountain bikes judging by tracks.Beeliner22/03/2019
Parked near the church, walked back down the road and then up through Aspley woods. For a UA top this one was enjoyable.WAYNE ROWLETT09/03/2019
Walked up Church Street from the village. Wandered around the golf course searching for potential higher points. Back down the path by the church. Solo.Dangerous Dave09/03/2019
Parked in Bow Brickhill village and walked up Church Street into the woods. Imagine the trig point would have been quite hard to find without a GPS. Lovely early morning light, an enjoyable short walk.jedthehumanoid24/02/2019
An out and back from Bletchley station (no trains to Bow Brickhill on a Sunday). Path upto Trig then step over fence to explore what seemed like higher ground next to a Pine tree. Another contender is the high ground next to another pine on the opposite side of the fairway. Reversed route to get back to Bletchley. Homeward bound via Milton Keynes Central and Tamworth.Dazingdale13/01/2019
Aspley Guise to Bow Brickhill.Smudge31/12/2018
From the church car park with family including my grandad, jonglew. So now you know we're family. Hope I revisit one day as it's my local hill.williamglew18/11/2018
K A quick visit stopping at the Church and following the FP to the trig.crazy24/02/2018
Approached across the golf course and explored a couple of possible high points among the pines and rhododendrons. Trig was definitely lower and was well hidden in the rhodos on the other side of the fence.Herbert Anchovy05/02/2018
Short, pleasant, Autumnal, woodland walk from church. Trig within small rhododendron clearing outside of low, wire golf course fence. High point possibly a few metres away, by pine, within golf course. Did not visit alternative on opposite side of road- contour ring of same height- as groundsmen working but did not appear higher from bridleway near aerial. ( No line of sight). The LIDAR GR definitely seemed lower.Denise 14/11/2017
Short walk from church car park through autumnal beech woods. Levellish summit. Easy access to trig pillar in clearing in birch and rododendron next to golf course boundary fence. A somewhat indistinct and unconvincing summit.RichardM14/11/2017
Large parking area at top of road near church. Stepped over fence, across fairways to secluded trig. Then to alternative HP, slight rise by silver birches on golf course on other side of road.Aye Jimmy09/10/2017
Crossed several fairways to trig just in area of rhodedendrons. Area near trig looks higher so stomped around a little.clivevilla12/08/2017
A pleasant wander through the woods. Stumbled upon the Trig.summitter29/07/2017
The path leading towards the trig point starts at the bend in the road - below the church carpark. The trig point is close to the path and near the fence - no need to cross the golf course.JohnW14/05/2017
Parked at church, followed by short walk across golf course to trig.Ramblingpaul08/05/2017
Bagged as YSM593 Bow Brickhill. Parked on road near church and followed paths to trig at other side of golf course. Loads of squirrels around. Found out on the way back we didn't need to walk as far down the road as there is a path past the house opposite the parking.thejackrustles23/04/2017
From the church. Crossed a fairway to the highest point on other side from trig.KC22/04/2017
From church. Trig point well camouflaged.Bramley28/11/2016
Easy pleasant walk from church and then walk out to Bletchley Station for train to London. Trig is in woods near edge of golf course and near silver birch clump.trimarc214/08/2016
From Church car park. Walked right past trig, but easier to spot coming other way. Ground just the other side of fence could be higher.PeterD21/03/2016
Approached from the west from road below church, up into lovely trails in the woods. Navigation quite straightforward, easily found trig, summit top across fence by trig on edge of golf course by a tree - checked all nearby possibilities for highest point and also alternative summit but convinced the top is near the trig.pdantic05/11/2015

Lazy one this , took car up to church car park . Walked across into woodland Trig point easy to find by some silver birch close to golf course fence .Haygalzer17/04/2014
Ran up here from Kent's Hill, there and back was 9 miles with some detours where I went wrong. The woods were lovely lots of squirrels and Woodpeckers. Trig was easy to findisabelle17/03/2014
Parked up in space nr cottage at SP912343. CP shown not exist. Stay high in woods nr fence and easy find of trig, agree higher point appears across 6th hole fairway. Wandered across between golfers and in fine weather to confirm bag. Back out over the 5th!nordicstar11/07/2012
this is actually just on the edge of Woburn golf club. Its about a 7 iron hooked just out of bounds off the sixth tee. Some of gold as well as bag obscure tops!simon and co15/03/2011
got on the golf course side of the fence which looks new - some difficult barbed wire to negotiate - then walked past trig without noticing - trig right be behind a big bush - should have taken my gpsPhil M20/01/2011

I walk through these woods reguarly. Lots of interesting tracks through the conifers and some good pubs in nearby woburn.Alex Bush25/10/2009
Nice 5 minute walk in the woods. Stick to the southern path that runs alongside the fence and you can't miss the trig.The Team04/05/2009
Pleasantly surprised. Wooded area and trig accessible on the non golf course side of the fence. The possible other top is 100m into the golf course from a padlocked gate - waste of time really as ground has probably been moved around for the golf course.destaylor31/03/2009
Parked on New Wavendon Heath. Watch out of golf balls.Overthehilljill27/03/2009
A popular place with walkers, runners and cyclists. Walked past the trig once before I spotted it.Father Ted14/12/2008
Dodged in and out of the trees to avoid the golfers and once at trig point discovered the muddy path I should have used in the first place!signyred08/07/2008
