Win Green

The highest point in the Cranborne Chase provides panoramic views from the Isle of Wight and Purbeck Hills to Blackmore Vale and Salisbury Plain. Win Green is crowned by beech trees growing on a Bronze Age bowl barrow with a distinctive ridge around the edge. This clump of trees is visible for miles around.The Ox-drove links the countryside of Thomas Hardy's novels with Salisbury, this was a long distance droving route along which cattle were herded from Devon and Somerset to the Hampshire ports.This rich downland habitat supports a wide range of plants and animals. A few years ago grazing was reintroduced which has resulted in an increase in the number of flowers found here.
