Dog walking at Fontmell Down

Cross dykes (thought to be territorial boundary markers) visible on Clubmen's Down at Fontmell Down

Fontmell Down offers delightful views and is a lovely place to enjoy with your four-legged friend.

There is now a delightful circular walk that you and your dog can enjoy which allows off-lead exercise for your pet.

When you visit Fontmell, you'll see on-site notices highlighting the route for dog walkers. As long as you keep your dog under close control, they can now be off lead to explore this marked route.

You can see the complete route on the PDF here.

Please make sure that your dog is always on a short lead when you are not on this circular route; this is to protect ground-nesting birds like the Skylark and Meadow Pipit.
