Whiteleaf Hill and Cross

Peter’s Lane, Nr Monks Risborough, Buckinghamshire. HP27 0RP

A lovely ancient site and nature reserve just outside Monks Risborough. The postcode will get you on the right road, then just follow the signs to the main car park.

There are picnic benches in the car park and some information boards dotted around about the wildlife you might see.

You can wander through the woodland across to the top of the massive chalk cross (you’re not allowed on the cross itself). Once you’re out into the clearing there are some truly stunning views to admire. There are some steep drops (and plenty of rabbit holes) though so keep an eye on little ones.

The last time I was up here was pre littlest child so I cannot remember how suitable it is for pushchairs. It was back in the days when leaving the car just involved undoing one child seat belt and walking away. Now it’s back to a military operation. Lol. At the very least it’s going to be a bit bumpy; the main path is through the woods and it’s a natural landscape so that’s to be expected. If you’ve been here more recently please let me know what it’s like for pushchairs so I can share with everyone.
