Ivinghoe Beacon is the hill where The Ridgeway begins/ends in the Chilterns. Far-reaching views make the hilltop a popular viewpoint and there are also remains of a hillfort and a trig point.
It is located in an area of scenic countryside of wildflower-rich grasslands and ancient woodlands spread across rolling hills.
Ivinghoe Beacon and the surrounding area is managed by the National Trust as part of their Ashridge Estate. There are several car parks across the area including a large tarmac car park lying south of Ivinghoe Beacon, off Beacon Road. There is a footpath connecting this car park to the Beacon.
Visit the National Trust website for more details.
