Walbury Hill

Walbury Hill, at 297 m (974 ft), is the highest point in the wild grasslands of the North Wessex Downs, Berkshire. The hill sits in the southwest corner of Berkshire and extends as a ridge into nearby Hampshire and Wiltshire. It is a popular spot for paragliders.  

Before the use of satellites, the BBC used the hill as a relay station during the Newbury Races. A car park can be found either side of the hill, a short walk from the summit. The summit itself is marked by a trig point, near to where the long-distance footpath the Test Way proceeds. This hill is also the start point of the Wayfarers Walk.
