It is the starting point of the Icknield Way to the east, and the Ridgeway long-distance path to the west.Ivinghoe Beacon is a popular spot for walkers, sightseers, and model aircraft enthusiasts, who use lift generated by the wind blowing up the hill – a technique known as slope soaring.Ivinghoe Beacon's appearance of remoteness, yet relative proximity to the film studios at Elstree, meant that it was a favoured location for many dramas, especially those produced by ITC in the 1960s.See Ivinghoe Beacon and all Aldbury has to offer by arranging your trip with our Aldbury route builder tool .
