This circular walk explores the ancient tracks and woodland paths through the beautiful rolling hills and valleys of the Faccombe Estate. It is a peaceful walk with plenty of wildlife, wildflowers and lovely vistas to enjoy. Along the way you will also learn something of the story of the Estate and the people that helped shape it.

There are no stiles or kissing gates on route, but there are several climbs and descents, a couple of which are quite steep, and some of the chalk paths can become muddy and slippery when wet, so boots with a good grip are a must and a walking stick/pole may be useful. You will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock, but there are plenty of gamebirds around, so dogs must be kept on a lead.

We will take short stops for breathers and to take in the views!
