The village of Ham was clearly built to serve the castle. A number of cottages have a coat of arms on them. You leave the village and take the quiet country lane for a few hundred yards, then take a succession of fields which give you fine views over the Severn. You reach the hamlet of Hill and from there take a very peaceful lane followed by a green lane, to reach the deer-park. The Whitcliff Deer-park is attractive in its own right, but also has a herd of deer (of course!) and more fine views. All in all this is a very pleasant, longish walk.

Did this walk on New Year's Day 2016. The recent heavy rain made the bridle path between waymark 21 and 24 nearly impassable and we wished we had our wellies on. Otherwise we had a good time. The deviation off the footpath at waymark 31 to the hunting lodge is not now permitted by the Berkeley estate.
