In the winter the footpaths, especially the chalk ones, can become very slippery.

The site is on a hill with steep slopes all around the edges and a large flat area on top.

Beware of Traffic
If walking to the site from main road please beware of a small section of road on entrance to the inner bailey which is narrow and used by both cars and pedestrians.
Uneven Ground
The grassy areas are prone to being uneven due to digging by rabbits.
