Farley Mount is a large area of beautiful downland and woodland, including West Wood. The area is ideal for walking, cycling and picnicking, with fine views over central Hampshire.
Farley Mount Monument is named after the famous monument to a horse, named "Beware Chalk Pit", which carried its owner to a racing victory in 1734, a year after having fallen into a chalk pit whilst out fox-hunting. The views all around the Hampshire landscape are stunning, and the monument can also be seen from many distant places, particularly when the sun is reflected from the white walls.
Car Parking: Several car parks serve the area.
