About the Two Ridges Link

The Two Ridges Link is an 8-mile walk that connects the eastern end of the Ridgeway at Ivinghoe Beacon with the start of the Greensand Ridge Walk at Linslade (near Leighton Buzzard). The route is indicated by signposts and waymarks, and is also marked on the latest OS Explorer map.

Just over a third of the Two Ridges Link follows the towpath of the Grand Union Canal, before it turns on to field paths and bridleways, passing through the villages of Slapton and Ivinghoe Aston before a steep climb to the top of Ivinghoe Beacon.

Buckinghamshire County Council publishes a leaflet describing the Two Ridges Link, which can be ordered from their web site (see my links page). Most of the historical or other factual data that I quote in my journal is taken from this source. The route is also shown on OS Explorer maps 181 and 192.
