Whiteleaf Hill in the Chilterns is well known for its butterflies, wildflowers, leafy woodlands, history, geology, archaeology and spectacular views.
There are panoramic views from the top over the old market town of Princes Risborough, a neat patchwork of fields in the Vale of Aylesbury to the rolling Wessex Downs in the far distance.
We own and manager the 11 hectare (27 acre) site.
The chalk hill-figure of Whiteleaf Cross has dominated the local landscape for several centuries, becoming a cultural focus associated with many aspects of local life. It was first officially noted by Francis Wise in 1742, but its full history is unknown and is the subject of much local speculation and folklore.
The history of Whiteleaf has been created into a booklet, together with additional historic, geological and wildlife information for educational and general use. These are now available in downloadable format from the list below.
