Our Limited Edition Print ‘Wood on the Downs’ by celebrated landscape artist Paul Nash depicts Ivinghoe Beacon in North Buckinghamshire.
A clump of beeches rises in a sculpted wave over hills that roll and tumble like the sea. Nash loved the mystery of ancient British landscapes and his many paintings inspired by Iron Age hillforts, trackways and sacred sites span a region from the Dorset coast to the northern tip of the Chilterns. It was during a 1924 visit to Ivinghoe Beacon, that great hump of chalk overlooking the Vale of Aylesbury, that he first discovered this wood, describing it as ‘an enchanted place in the hills girdled by wild beech woods, dense and lonely places where you might meet anything from a polecat to a dryad.’
Today the Ridgeway and Icknield Way paths meet nearby, making this a landmark for long distance ramblers and a destination for daytrippers.
