Fantastic views and possibly some rabbits!

Richard Adams’ timeless novel Watership Down about the rabbit families and their adventures draws on his memories of living near the real Watership Down in north Hampshire.

A bridleway, the Wayfarer’s Walk, runs along the ridge of the Down. Other nearby features include the Iron Age hillforts at Ladle Hill, on Great Litchfield Down, immediately to the west, and Beacon Hill a little further on – all great spots for a picnic and glorious views.
