Pepperbox Hill is very interesting. It was a Hunting Tower for the forests nearby. The ladies would watch the hunt from the tower. You can see Salisbury from the hill. There is a carp part and it is a good place to walk a dog...More

Pepperbox Hill, with its 17th century hexagonal folly, is the starting point for walks along Dean Hill and Brixworth Down. There are long views towards Salisbury with the famous spire in view from 6 miles away. The Pepperbox itself is closed but is worth a...More

Awesome views and lots of fun paths to run in the area but the folly was a bit disappointing. Sad to see so many dog turds all around the folly, pretty gross. A risk to humans, other dogs and especially resident farm animal’s health &...More

The "pepperbox" is just a folly with no access (its bricked up), but as a location it affords good views over Salisbury to the north and south towards Southampton and the New Forest.

The views on a clear day from here can be stunning but that's about it ! The structure is not accessible and is a bit of a folly !

This is a wonderful spot to just take a few steps form the car and take in the scenery, or for the more ambitious a lovely countryside walk

This beauty spot is within easy reach of Salisbury and is well worth a visit on a dry day. The very fast main road starts to climb upwards and the turning is easily missed because it is a very narrow, bumpy track. Do not be...More
