Shawford Down was an easy to find walk for us, we wanted somewhere out in the open but a short walk just to get out for some fresh air. Shawford Down was perfect for this.
There is a large sign on the entrance, but when we visited the car park down the bottom was shut and people were parking along the limited spaces along the track to this.
There are plenty of walks from this spot, and you can take a look at the large map near the entrance.
We just wanted a small circular walk, and just went around the purple marked paths on the map.
Go through the gate and turn left to take you up the hill.
With the memorial cross on your right-hand side.
The views up here are brilliant and you can see quite far across the hills.
It would be a good place to have a picnic or take a little walk with the kids or dog.
It’s pretty peaceful up here, apart from the sound of the very close M3 motorway!!
There aren’t really any directions to give you as we just walked around the large open area to stretch everyone’s legs and grab some fresh air.
