The villages of Chillerton and Gatcombe lie nestled in valleys surrounded by the downs, in the heart of the Isle of Wight countryside. Far from the usual tourist hotspots this area is blessed with a large number of footpaths and bridleways and, therefore, a wonderful location for interesting walking routes.

The directions for a series of circular walks have been drawn up by local residents and these are either available in the form of leaflets or may be downloaded from the parish website.
