About

The highest point in West Sussex and the South Downs National Park, the views from the summit of Black Down Hills are truly inspiring.  Follow in the footsteps of Alfred Lord Tennyson and experience the Black Down 'Temple of the Winds Walk', starting at the National Trust car park on Tennyson's Lane, Haslemere, along the track to the beautifully carved stone seat to marvel at the countryside laid out in front of you.

Black Down can also be visited on two wheels, head out of Haslemere on the B2131 and turn right up Haste Hill to Tennyson's Lane, with a mixture of easy bridleways and challenging terrain you can pick up one of the many Surrey Cycle routes along the way.

Fires and barbecues are not permitted anywhere on site to help protect our countryside.
