Trail description

Follow this mixed trail of surfaced and unsurfaced woodland paths around the Iron Age Boddington Hillfort. It is relatively level and takes in views across the  Vale.

There are two large interpretation panels along the trail describing the hillfort's features and detailing the work involved in maintaining this historic site. There is also a bench so you can admire views over the Vale Of Aylesbury and the Chiltern Hills.

Historic England have stated that the "on-going work on the site over the past years is an excellent example of Scheduled Monument management in a multi-issue woodland environment, undertaken by a team of enthusiastic volunteers from the Chiltern Society."
