South Downs National Park
The stunning South Downs National Park runs up to the northern edge of Bishop’s Waltham, offering up a host of walking and cycling trails right on the doorstep.
The Pond was created for the early Bishops of Winchester who lived at the medieval palace. Today, it’s used by the town’s fishing club and attracts a huge variety of wildlife and wildfowl.
Moors Nature Reserve
The Moors Nature Reserve is the main source of the Hamble River. It’s a Site of Scientific Interest and is a great spot to see kingfishers and dragonflies.
Claylands Nature Reserve
On the outskirts of the town, Claylands has lush, grassy meadows and ponds that are home to one of the largest populations of crested newts in the country.
