It's a nice place to walk, but you have to share it with herds of cows and lovely green cow poo for your dogs to roll in!

I enjoy walking my dog around Borough hill. Please be aware though that the only dog poo bin is near the car park. There are no bins around the hill itself. There are some fantastic viewpoints to see from up here.

Superb place to let the dogs run free. Don't forget poo bags and free parking. Certain times of the year there will be cows in the fields

Iron Age fort with history throughout its existence. Skylarks song a particular pleasure. Green woodpeckers a common sight
