A circular walk taking in the grounds of South Hill Park arts centre, an elegant red-brick mansion mostly of the Victorian period. It stands within fine gardens and the remnants of its original 800 acre park. The parkland is designated as a Grade II registered park of special historic interest. It provides a valuable habitat with its woodland of birch, oak, sweet chestnut and exotic species, parkland areas with formal lawns, two lakes (which act as balancing ponds) and wetland areas. The walk continues through local residential areas and then into Swinley Forest to Cesar's Camp Iron Age hillfort. The hillfort was built between 2500 and 2700 years ago and is designated as a scheduled ancient monument. The walk follows a mixture of parkland paths, pavements and forest tracks with a couple of short but fairly steep ascents and descents in the forest section. Some of the forest tracks will also be muddy after wet weather. There are no stiles but the walk does pass through three kissing gates. Dogs are welcome both in the South Hill Park grounds and in Cesar's Camp. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

We completed this walk in the last Saturday of January 2017. we really enjoyed the changing scenary and Ceasers Camp gave lovely views across the Berkshire countryside.

It's worth taking some time to look around both the buildings and the grounds of South Hill Park. It's really is a gem with formal gardens, a lake with a fountain, art galleries (free) and a bar/cafe.
