Haddington Hill is the highest point in the county of Buckinghamshire. The summit sits 267 m (876 ft) above sea level and is located in the Chilterns, a chalk escarpment covering an area of 833 km2. The hill is owned by the Forestry Commission – Wendover Woods covers over 800 acres.
There are many trails that can be found among the forest and that are accessible by car. A car park can be found located nearby. Since the summit is flat, the top of Haddington Hill is hard to determine. In the woods, east of the carpark, you will find a series of large stones bearing the inscription “The Chiltern Summit”.
