The trees on top of Pulpit Hill stand tall and clear and can be seen for miles around, making a stunning contribution to the surrounding landscape. Our ancestors recognised the vantage point offered by Pulpit Hill and made a hill fort, the remains of which can be seen at the top of the hill.
Pulpit Hill is one of local artist Judy Nash's favourite views in the Chilterns. Judy says:
"The trees on the crest of Pulpit Hill follow the contours of the hilltop and in autumn and winter their trunks stand out pale against the sky."
In this acrylic painting which she entered in the Special Wood Art Competition in 2008, Judy captures the colours of late autumn and the fresh sharpness of a frosty morning.
