Tips

  • Kit P

    This wonderful lookout point is the site of an Iron Age hillfort as well as a thriving nature reserve. The summit stands 230 feet (70 m) above the River Itchen and you can access it by steps or a more gradual path. A gorgeous clump of beech trees surround the summit.The hill lies within (although barely) the South Downs National Park and is a well-maintained area of tradition downland. Summer brings rare butterflies, insects and an abundance of birds to the hill. The views of Winchester are exceptional from the northern side.

    Do not miss the mizmaze at the top! It is apparently quite unusual with its shape being almost a square. Follow the path and forget about the world.
