I was in the area to find the oldest English geocache, the bonus was finding myself admiring what I didn't first realise was a monument listed on this site! great views from up here today. Thanks to James (M0JCQ) for mentioning the fact that this is loggable in his log for the Monument Hill Trigpoint.

Local high spot with a grand view! Easily reachable from Wendover or a nearby car park. Well worth a trip

Lovely monument to the men of Bucks. Porphyritic granite from Cornwall making up the Monument I'll wager. Good views over the vale of Oxford once the shower of rain cleared.

Parked near Butler's cross junction then up to impressive monument, gorse bushes and under bare trees. Lovely views on a lovely morning for March.
