This is a beautiful stretch of countryside with lovely views and a fantastic history. Peaceful and revitalizing. Great at this time of year for picking blackberries and sloes.

Old Winchester Hill used to be a hill fort dating back to the Iron Age some 3,800 years ago. Lots of information plaques around. Free carpark. Located near to Barton Stacey off the A303. Interesting experience.

This delightful area of Hampshire forms an early (or late!) part of the South Downs Way. We were lucky enough to walk it on a warm clear day, which with the relatively easy walking allowed us to fully appreciate the great views.
