Parked at National Trust car park and followed the obvious trail to the topograph. Relaxed and enjoyed the views here and had an enjoyable chat with two friendly National Park Rangers. Continued on a short distance afterwards to the trig and highest point. Beautiful area!Gerry the Ranger08/08/2020
Parked as National trust car park and walked along well trodden paths to trig. Great views across downs .Hippy7719/02/2020
From National trust Black Down CP, circuit of the serpent path nipping off to the summit mound and Trig, doesn’t look as though many folk venture off the main tracks. Lovely sunny morning good views and surprisingly few people.Jephcote8314/09/2019

Last walk before heading home for Cumbria. Nice sunny morning, have loved the Surrey Hills. Will be back.nickywood122/11/2018
From car park at SU 922306. There are many more tracks and RoWs on the ground than are marked on the OS map, but kept heading S and up; trig is just within the trees to the E of a clear area.Isbjorn09/11/2018
Walked from Rec Ground CP in Scotland Lane, Haslemere. Interesting woodland, though summit area a bit tangly.IanHHill26/09/2018
Circular walk from Northchapel via Lurgashall. Glorious day, views from the temple superb. The rather lonely looking trig point is most easily found via a path leading off from the easterly n/s path running over the top.jedthehumanoid13/09/2018

With E & M. A hot and sunny day. Dry and sandy underfoot. From Haslemere station > Shepherds Hill > footpath beside Haslemere cricket club > Stedlands Farm > Valewood Farm House > Chase Wood > Ridden Corner > Sussex Border Path > Serpent Trail then into trig point and small knoll of county summit. Lunch at Temple of the Winds, great views. Return via footpath by Cotchet Farm and back by same route to Haslemere and a well earned pint to quench our thirsts at The Swan. 12.5k. A great walk.Beeliner08/07/2018
Parked in Tennyson's lane and walked up to Black down, admired the views and found the trig point before setting out to Marley Heights and Hatch Farm hill. 5 hours later back where I started. Sunny day - probably needed more sunscreen!Buck18/05/2018
With K from NAshley10/03/2018
High potential on the steep slippery mud descent to rival today's luge sliders at Pyeongchang . No 'tea tray' required , just a shiny waterproof jacket will do the job nicely here to achieve 82 miles an hour?Chris Pearson11/02/2018
2/11 Up to Temple of the Winds then trig and little lump that is top. Returned by rather muddy path to east.SS09/02/2018
3rd day in a row and still finding new route variations all taking around 3 hrs on a circular from Marley Common. Overnight rain saw us pick a mud free (almost) route using quiet lanes and paths including dropping down from the Temple to Abesters then lane running north and back up mulchy sunken bridleaway steeply to Tennysons Lane where icy rain started and soon turned to light snow. Offered and gladly accepted a lift for 2 miles from a dog walker to speed our return for indoor warmth and a cowboy lunch of bacon and beans on a bitter day.Chris Pearson09/02/2018
back again with L for another 3 hr morning outing, but finding different footpaths to explore today on the lovely lower slopes around Valewood. Down off the nose from The Temple of the Winds ( after our usual sandwich halt) and then slanting path back up deep churned up leaf mulch mud which we tried to tiptoe alongside in the deep sunken groove. L having long phone chats with work friends as we marched along, getting a cold hand in keen NW wind.Chris Pearson08/02/2018
A lovely winter's morning of blue sky sunshine with frozen mud making for good going in trainers. Smoke from burning scrub clearing drifting around the pine trees and slanting sun making for atmospheric misty silver light. Our usual Sandwich halt at Temple of the (no) Winds for 30 mins stay in this curved south facing sun trap at exactly noon - perfect timing for some winter warmth. Northerly airflow gave clarity to distant Ditchling Beacon and Ashdown Forest 35 miles away over the Weald. Tranquility affected by crunching of conservation work tractor mowing the bracken, gorse and heather to a fine pulp, to encourage species diversity.Chris Pearson07/02/2018
A sunny Sunday morning with a cold NW wind .A 3 hr walk up down and up and all around to sort out where all the paths go and which ones are shown on the map, particularly at a confusing tricky 5 way junction at the valley head bend. From Temple of Winds down SW path and reascended on good but unmapped path from NT car park at Abesters directly back to The Temple. Plaque commerates giving of Black Down by the Hunter family whose ansecetor had a hand in setting up the National Trust in the area in 1905Chris Pearson04/02/2018
a favourite destination on a 3hr30 mins walk circular walk with L from Marley Common, sunny but cold wind but Temple of the Winds a delightful non windy sun trap today. Despite this being my 11th visit still piecing together different paths that crisscross this broad heath / wooded top. > ascentChris Pearson01/02/2018
10th ascent and a new route for us by a fun stream/ path/ quagmire all the way up from Fernhurst to Temple of the Winds lookout then back to Marley Common and snugly /smugly indoors for lunch just before rain swept in.Chris Pearson29/01/2018
Climbed in the fog and rain just as it was getting dark after a day of trigpointing. Difficult to find in the dark as the trigpoint is in the bushes and trees above the path.DanMaisieBex27/01/2018
3 hour walk with L, before the rain came in. Down to Haslemere to post a parcel then up Hasty Hill ( leisurely) and Tennyson's Lane ( the poet lived here) to main top car park - a favourite with Haslemere dog walkers. Alongpaths to once more visit the tucked away trig and down and back up to Marley Common, meeting along the way friendly Dan the postman out in his van - had a long chat ( delaying the post)- known to us as head coach of Haslemere runners who did a sub 3 hr marathon at the age of 49 last year, which is pretty speedy.Chris Pearson27/01/2018
Becoming one of our regular favourite and hilly walks when staying at Marley Common. Many footpaths churned up into muddy unavoidable trenches by recent prolonged rain. Included another visit to the excellent Haslemere museum which also has a good 3D relief model of Black Down area which shows the complexity of the many wooded spurs that is hard to discern form the map. 4 hrouting on a sunny day at lastChris Pearson25/01/2018
Parked in National trust carpark followed track across the hill then heading the woods to the trig, then walked to viewpoint and then back to carjmistry8614/01/2018
Repeat of yesterday's lovely 5 hr walk with L who commentated that someone had coloured in the world today as the sun was shining to replace yesterday's permagloom. Today lost in deep puzzled debate /thought about the theories about Durrington Walls nr Stonehenge - why so much seemingly unnessary effort? (result of more Time Team watching).Having failed to resolve that one - moved on to other unfathomable mysteries - origin of life, start of the universe, how to look back in time, what are thoughts made of? what happens in sleep? death?future of the planet. Realised we were going to need a much longer walk to resolve this lot.Chris Pearson19/11/2017
Marley Heights - Hatch Farm Hill - Black Down (to trig and nearby summit again this time) - Then Serpents Way to Haslemere. 6 hour circuit with L from Whitehanger in permagloom drizzle.Highlight was copper colours of fallen leaves and an hour in the first rate Haslemere Museum - includes a world collection of geology, fossils and animal specimens and a mummy with its preserved toes visible (kept in a darkened room - given a torch to look at it)Chris Pearson18/11/2017
Another 2 hour circular with L on my half day from Huf stay . Not quite to summit this time. Saw no one until I stopped for a wee when suddenly a whole crocodile of Wednesday walkers appeared from nowhere, then stopped by me thinking I had found the footpath . Part of an odd week of mishaps - washing my hands under almost boiling water - wrong tap , and walking into a closed glass sliding door.Chris Pearson15/11/2017

An easy stroll from Tennyson's Lane car park.lenman16/08/2017
A lovely evening stroll from the small car park near Abesters, the perfect antidote to the vileness of the M25 in 28 C heat. Nice path to the Temple of the Winds, with a splendid view, then up to the ridge through beautiful heathland and pine trees. The trig point is easy to find, but the summit is less clear. Pretty sure I found it.Gill04/07/2017

From NT car park, easy walk through a beautiful wood via the viewpoint at Temple of the Winds. Not even a breeze!CXB06/02/2017
Only car in car park to the north in low cloud. Headed up obvious path then found I had lost the map, wandered about and eventually found top, got back to car park to find map where I'd dropped it. All in dense cloud but oddly enjoyable.KC05/02/2017
Circular walk from Whitehanger. Brief blast of warm sunshine very welcome at Temple of the Winds. Saw our 'felted' friends again, but sadly not MJ (The TuMP originator) who by coincidence was on here as well today I notice.Chris Pearson28/01/2017

County top outing. Before setting off from home go to the website for Black down and print a map off for the woods to make it easier to navigate. From the lower car park of the two close to each other on Tennyson's lane walk south until you reach the Serpents trail follow this to a pond on your left (hopefully not dried up)turn right up hill at the top look for a narrow path on the right to the trig crossing a fallen tree.WAYNE ROWLETT12/11/2016

Stopped by on a circular walk from Haslemere via the Temple of the Winds using the Serpent Trail as far as the Temple view point. Bilberries, ling and bell heather, and a trig pillar, then superb views from the Temple a few metres away. What more could a chap want.Sixtyplus08/08/2016
From Farnborough Airshow. Made a loop around to carry out an evening raid. Hazy views so can only imagine how good it can be.the bridleway which climbs easier from the southerly parking area is blocked by a fallen tree.. the direct path is steep but clear for almost the whole way. Trig at summit shows some damage.stig_nest16/07/2016
Circular route - 6 miles.Graeme22/05/2016
From car park on Tennyson's Lane. There was a woodpecker in a tree at the summit. If something's looking down at me, I don't feel as if I've made it to the top.r.ashwell10/04/2016
Second Marilyn of the day: walked up the steep hillside from car park to SE. Galloway cattle grazing on hill.Cas-gwent04/04/2016
Back again 3 days later for another (90min) run. This time mud frozen hard with below freezing air temperatures on a beautiful sharp sunny blue sky Wednesday afternoon. Again with Lesley on my half day. As the sun sank to west this heathland beauty spot with its steep slopes really was gorgeous in perfect low light and little sign of civilisation. other than NT landrover feeding the belted Galloway cows.(or Felted Galloways as L could only say with a frozen face!) Found trig -previous visit 23 years ago!Chris Pearson20/01/2016

Cycled up from Haslemere station, left bike at Cochets Farm then walked up to trig point in the early spring afternoon sun. Walked along to the viewpoint (Temple of the Winds), then down the other side of Black Down to the field where the Iberia Caravelle aeroplane came down in 1967 (http://www.fernhurstsociety.org.uk/caravelle.html) . Then back to the bike and return to Haslemere station.Biffin's mate03/03/2015

Driving towards Hamble with Dorothy after watching Hearts beating Rangers in London pub (so already in great spirits!). Beautiful sunny evening prompted a snap decision to bag top 26 en route. From car park in Fernhurst then past Reeth. To find the trig, walk north from Temple of the Winds, take NT path due east and then narrow path north again. Keep going and you'll find it. On this mid August evening, the wood is glorious with some very diverse and verdant undergrowth and trees.callumorr10/08/2014

Took Tennyson Lane to park north of the top. Walked to the summit which is off the path but reasonably easy to find if up keep walking uphill. Limited views. The area is a NT nature reserve with a mix of woods and heath. It would be great to visit at dusk when the nightjars are active.mindlessflogger24/05/2014

3 or 4 visits to Temple of the winds, one to the dreary summit. Today's walk was Gospel Grn-Shillinglee -Lickfold-Black Down inc the top- Gospel Grn, 14 miles/6h.

Started the assent from Quellwood Common at about the 115m contour. Made a swift assent to the Temple of the Winds viewpoint, from there moved northwards to locate the trigpoint amongst the trees. Then visited several nearby bumps.garyhoney09/01/2000
