The Downs
Reviewed September 3, 2012

If you manage to park on the downs then there is no parking charge. The Kings Hall which is close by has very good coffee shop.

Such a beautiful, unspolied area, full of nature as it should be. So beautiful you almost do not want to tellanybody about it.

We walked for miles and miles just taking in the scenery. Not sure where we were going until we found the noticeboards, which explain a bit about the downs and the three routes. It was overcast and drizzling but did not put us off. Will come back in the summer and explore some more.

The Bounds of the Downs
The plan is to go clockwise, starting from the King's Hall. The full tour of The Bounds of The Downs is about 3¼ miles, but there are shorter routes. The blue shortcut, up the Hundred Steps, brings it down to a very manageable 1¼ miles. The green shortcut, up the slope leading to The Lees makes a 1¾ mile circuit.
