Farley Mount is being circumnavigated on our third loop walk on the Clarendon Way. A popular land mark and destination from Winchester and surrounding villages, the area can get busy at weekends. A short part of the way slightly diverts from the course of Clarendon Way (on the main road) and runs in parallel through the woods as this is nicer to walk.
The southern part of the loop is less busy and St John’s church (Farley Church) is a tranquil place with a number of interesting features, particularly the mystical patterns on the south wall of the church. There are a few benches to rest and take in the view.
You should attempt the walk clockwise as the approach to the church is more impressive and you can take in the views from Beacon Hill and Farley Mount towards the end of the walk.
Start at Pitt Down car park. There are no restaurants, cafes or shops nearby.
Length: 8.6 km / 5.4 miles
Time: 2 hours at a swift pace + breaks
Difficulty: Easy – 123 m total ascent
