5. Alphington/Whitestone Valley Park

This western ridge line of the city has splendid rural valleys and offers excellent views of the city.

Most of the land is private so please respect other people's property and only use public footpaths or bridleways that are marked by signposts and stiles. However, Barley Valley Local Nature Reserve has woods and meadows for people to explore.


There are several entrances into Barley Valley Local Nature Reserve that can be found off Higher Barley Mount, at the junction of Bowhay Lane Bridleway and Barley Lane and at the end of Antonine Crescent.
