Visiting Brush Hill
Brush Hill Local Nature Reserve is close to Monks Risborough. Princes Risborough is a little further from the site, but is a busier town with more amenities.
Brush Hill is in a roughly triangular-shaped area formed by Peters Lane and Kop Hill. Opposite the car park for Whiteleaf Cross & Hill, there is an entrance for Brush Hill, where you will find the information panel (pictured below).
Whether walking the Ridgeway National Trail (which crosses the site) or if you're just enjoying a picnic, the panoramic views from the Hill are among the best in the Chilterns. We encourage everyone to use this open access space, including schools, Guides, Scouts, etc. Please contact the Chiltern Society for more details.
