A number of woodland birds find a suitable habitat in Hillock Wood. The silent observer may be lucky enough to see the gold crest, one of our smallest native birds. The chiffchaff, a summer visitor to Britain, may also be spotted together with the blackcap, recognisable by its distinctive colouration of the head.
The walk is well waymarked. The arrows on the tree mark the junction.
Follow the bridleway, L17, along the drive, which almost immediately bears right to a bridlegate, and enters Hillock Wood.
Continue along this well maintained Bridleway for about one hundred metres and turn left at the waymarked crossing path.
