Interesting information

Much of the walk follows the route of a carriage driveway created on the orders of local landowner Lord Revelstoke, of the famous banking firm Baring Brothers, in the 1880s. The Drive formed a nine-mile tour built so that the Lord could entertain guests with a scenic carriage ride and impress them with his property and wealth.

A short distance in, the route passes by Warren Cottage, which was at one time the lunch-stop for the Lord and his visitors.  This area was once used for farming rabbits for their meat and skins; the remains of walls built to keep the animals in can still be seen.
