A great place to go for a walk. There is a lot to look at and the trail goes off in different directions so you can explore. Go here often with friends to just talk and be away from the city.

Massive fields just outside Winchester city centre are home to a nature reserve and a marked trail where you are able to see all kinds of wildlife and Birdlife. Great on a clear dry day.
