This is the highest point in the area so well worth the walk for the view. Not really much else to see though

I have visited Liddington Castle in Swindon a few times. The walk around the castle is very good with views over Swindon and the surrounding area (But not recommended for people with any walking disabilities as the terrain is very steep)

A great escape close to Swindon. Brilliant views, fresh air and space for the children to run. Close to the Ridgeway path and Waylands Smithy to make a full day of it.

When I went I parked in the layby at the bottom. walk back out towards the main road and turn right, just up there you will find the ridgeway. walk along that and its signposted from there. Enjoy!

There is a farm shop at Chiseldon which has parking.This is about a mile and a half from the hill just off the A346.There is also a small layby on the Ridgeway Road which runs past the hill which is big enough for one vehicle
