A very steep climb to get to the top of Beacon Hill, the first part on steps formed by tree roots followed by grass, earth and exposed chalk. The ground was wet from rain earlier in the week so was slippery in places. Reaching the top is very rewarding - with panoramic views (and autumn colours when I visited), Highclere Castle in the distance and the grave of the 5th Earl of Carnarvon (very simple and surrounded by a fence)
