Ivinghoe Beacon Ridgeway Walk

Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire

16 km / 10 miles
A 10-mile circuit starting from picturesque Aldbury going along the Ridgeway National Trail to Ivinghoe Beacon, returning via the National Trust's Ashridge Estate and the Chiltern Way. The airy ridges on the Ridgeway contrast with the patchwork of woods and fields on the Chiltern Way. The route uses well waymarked footpaths, bridleways and lanes. The start is accessible by public transport.

The Chiltern Hills were designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in 1965 recognising that the Chilterns countryside is amongst the finest in England and Wales. This walk is one of a series jointly produced by the Chiltern Society, Chilterns Conservation Board and National Trails Team, members of the Ridgeway Partnership, a group tasked with maintaining and developing The Ridgeway National Trail. It is one of a series as a cooperative venture to promote both the Ridgeway and the Chiltern Way.
