Dog walking at Lewesdon Hill 

Lewesdon Hill is a fantastic spot for a dog walk. The climb to the top will give your pooch a good leg stretch, and then you can both enjoy an invigorating exploration of the woody summit. Dogs are welcome if kept under control at all times and on a lead when livestock are grazing. Just remember to observe the usual rules about keeping your dog under control around livestock and bagging and binning the poop.
