Take a Walk, Enjoy the Views
Jul 2021
This area is a perfect place for walks and the views of the surrounding countryside are stunning. A 7.6 metre high double gibbet standing in the middle of a neolithic long-barrow, Combe Gibbet was erected in 1676 to hang two locals found guilty of murder, although it is believed the current gibbet is the sixth replacement of the original. How is that for a little bit of local history?

After cycling to Combe gibbet from Andover we arrived just as there was a little bit of snow, got some amazing views and pictures. Sone amazing walks around the area and perfect for a countryside day out. A great spot for drone photography and there is always lots is space for picnics etc. The surrounding area is amazing too with lots of wildlife and things to see. Would definitely recommend

Parking is hit and miss although there is more parking on the Faccombe road not too far away. The views are stunning and there are enough paths to allow for some good walks. Catch it at the right time and you will see some lovely flying displays from the Buzzards and Red Kites and keep an eye out for the Kestrels I have often seen them hovering near the car park.

Spectacular views!

Visited for a walk and to explore the area. Car park is easy to find and free to use, loads of footpaths to pick from. We managed to pick one that was quite technical in places but well worth it for the views and spontaneous blackberry picking!

The gibbet only really merits a quick look. It is interesting to see but there's not much to it. The main reason for coming here is for the views. There's a small free car park at the top if you don't want to walk too far. Nearby Walbury Hill is the highest point in Berkshire (297m).

Lovely views on a clear day and great place to watch the sunset/sunrise! Car park available which is quite small. Also good for a bike ride but too steep for kids and some adults

Good country walk

Started a walk from Combe Gibbet. The gibbet is interesting for a few minutes.

Great views as you are very high up.

Free car parking although the car park is not that big, so come early to get a space.

Incredible views on a clear day

What a great walk. A little steep at the outset but the fabulous views out towards Oxford from the top of the scarp make the exertion well worthwhile. I was reminded of Hardy’s poem Wessex Heights. If you haven’t read it, do yourself a favour. Take one last look at that view then open your edition of Hardy’s poems and luxuriate.

A View for Miles

This spot has amazing views of the surrounding countryside.
Here you will find 'Combe Gibbet' erected on top of a Neolithic burial mound and standing 974 feet above sea level.
We passed several people taking dogs for walks and the place is great for hang gliding.
A film called Black Legend was made, based on the crime of murder which took place nearby, hence the building of the Gibbet.
It was a beautiful bright January day when we visited but there had been a frost overnight and the road we departed from was extremely icy.
Also a good place for children giving them freedom to run round and get exercise.
