Win Green is crowned by beech trees growing on a Bronze Age bowl barrow with a distinctive ridge around the edge. It is visible for miles around.
Cranborne Chase is a nationally designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and covers 380 square miles of countryside, overlapping the boundaries of Wiltshire, Dorset, Hampshire and Somerset.
Nearby Lamer Tree Gardens were the folly of General Pitts Rivers and were created in 1880. Today they offer a tranquil place to explore.
The highest point in the Cranborne Chase provides panoramic views from the Isle of Wight and Purbeck Hills to Blackmore Vale and Salisbury Plain.
Very quiet off road walk.
Good path all year round. Some sections may be slippery after rainfall.
Cranborne Chase offers areas of rare chalk grasslands, scientifically important ancient woodlands, and chalk escarpments. The Ox-drove links the countryside of Thomas Hardy's novels with Salisbury, this was a long distance droving route along which cattle were herded from Devon and Somerset to the Hampshire ports.
The road to the car park is unmade and should be taken slowly. Alternative parking/start point is half way at Tollard Royal village.
