Always a lovely place to go. Fantastic views over Portsmouth, Fareham and Gosport. On a clear day you can quite literally see for miles.

For entertainment you have several... More

Look out for cattle and horses grazing, there are normally signs up saying they are loose. Try walking back towards Southwick and Waterlooville, some lovely wood walks there. What I like best is the easy access... More
