This half mile serpentine walk with Ionic and Tuscan temples at either end continually delights the visitor with unexpected stunning views through the trees of the ruins of the 12th century Cistercian abbey at Rievaulx below. Also revealed is the arched bridge over the river Rye, with its valley and the rolling Hambledon Hills around it. Beeches and other deciduous trees line the walk and the ground is carpeted with clumps of primroses, cowslips, orchids and clovers amongst many others.
In the 1750s Thomas Duncombe III decided to create a similar ride to the one his father had created at Duncombe Park some 40 years before. Using a less formal plan with a more winding path, he was perhaps intending to link the two rides with a viaduct, but unfortunately this was never built.
