To celebrate being back in the Chilterns, I decided to make the most of the gorgeous weather and take a walk around Ivinghoe Beacon. This is a great walk that can be done in a few hours, and is ideal for a clear, sunny day.

Ivinghoe Beacon itself makes the ideal lunch stop, although it’s only about 30 minutes into the walk. And make sure you take the short diversion to the Grade II listed Pitstone Windmill (you can’t miss it on your left as you walk south from Ivinghoe). It’s a beautiful subject for landscape photography, and the property is owned by the National Trust so you can go inside if you want to (there’s a small fee if you’re not a member).

The route

The Ivinghoe Beacon route I walked (shown below) is just under 14 km in total. It took me around 3 hours and 40 minutes, with plenty of stops for lunch and to take photographs.

You can park for free at Pitstone Hill car park (SP 954 149). The route below shows the walk beginning and ending at that car park.
