Chiltern Hills
and ending near Sudbury , Suffolk
Suffolk
. It is approximately 40 miles (64 km) long and passes through Essex
Essex
and south-east Cambridgeshire
Cambridgeshire
.

ELEVATION

The highest point of the ridge is Great Wood Hill , which is also the highest point in Suffolk.

There are numerous tops over 100 m, but although the hills in this region tend to have fairly steep sides they have flat tops, leading to very low topographic prominence . A case in point is Biggin Common, near the village of Castle Camps . Despite being a prominent landmark and the highest point for nearly 15 miles in every direction, its prominence is only 20 m to the marginally higher Great Wood Hill , 18 miles away, the hills being connected by a ridge with very little change in height.
