You may find this information helpful when researching the area prior to your visit.

The Chiltern Hills are a chalk escarpment in southeast England. They are known locally as “the Chilterns”. A large portion of the hills was designated officially as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1965.

The Chilterns stretches in a seventy-five mile southwest to northeast diagonal from Goring-On-Thames in Oxfordshire through Buckinghamshire, via Dunstable Downs in Bedfordshire to the furthest northeast ridge which runs from Deacon Hill, Pegsdon, close to the border of Hertfordshire.

The scarp overlooks the Vale of Aylesbury and approximately coincides with the southernmost extent of the ice sheet during the last ice age. The Chilterns are part of the Southern England Chalk Formation which also includes Salisbury Plain, Cranborne Chase, the Isle of Wight and the South Downs, in the south. In the north, the chalk formations continue northeastwards across north Hertfordshire, Norfolk and the Lincolnshire Wolds, finally ending as the Yorkshire Wolds in a prominent escarpment, south of the Vale of Pickering.
