|Whiteleaf Hill and the chalk cross|
|Lacey Green windmill|
I carried on and reached the foot of the hill. A pair of buzzards were circling the field, so I watched them for a few minutes then headed up the hill through the trees.
There were lots of interesting trees in the woods and some look very old.
After a steep climb, I reached the top of the hill and the trees cleared, opening out onto chalk grassland. Lots of very large yellow meadow ant hills covered the hill top and there were more amazing views of the Chillterns, from Whiteleaf Hill and the chalk cross, along to Lacey Green with the windmill and further round to Bledlow Ridge.
Then I headed back down through the trees, glad that I'd stopped and had a quick walk.
