Watership Down

Yes, it really does exist and itís located within the North Wessex Downs AONB! Richard Adamsí classic book about rabbit families living on Watership Down drew on his memories of living near the real Watership Down in northern Hampshire, on the south-eastern edge of the AONB. The area is now a popular destination for cyclists and walkers and a bridleway, the Wayfarer's Walk cross county footpath, runs along the ridge of the Down.
