Unspoilt, rolling hills – that’s what you will discover at Burton Dassett Hills. Whether you are walking, flying a kite or just sitting in your car, the magnificent views from these hills are breathtaking. The site comprises a series of rugged hilltops affording spectacular views in all directions and Fox Covert, a small woodland with a surfaced footpath. Opened as a country park in 1971, the 100 acres contain a wealth of historical interest such as the prominent beacon, quarry remains and the nearby 12th Century All Saints Church.
Parking charges apply at this country park. If you fail to display a valid day ticket or permit then you may be issued a parking charge notice and a fine of up to £50.
There are regular Police patrols in both marked and unmarked vehicles at this park as part of ongoing monitoring operations. Please be aware, it is a contravention of the bylaws of the park to drive across the hills. Please report any 4×4 activity to the Police on 101 or Rangers, if on site.
Natural England and Natural Resources Wales have updated the Countryside Code advice for countryside visitors. Please read the Countryside Code so we can all enjoy the outdoors responsibly.
