This circular walk from the hall explores the countryside to the north of the site. You'll pass Avon Dassett, Shooter's Hill, Hall's Hill and Windmill Hill before passing through Farnborough village. On the way there's some nice country views from the high points and lots of wildlife to see. Keep your eyes peeled for Kingfisher, moorhens, long tailed tits, gold crests, and tree creepers.
