In recent years, a pathway has been installed that now links Weston Shore to Abbey Hill in Netley. The starting point is the pathway that runs from the car park opposite Canberra Towers, along the shore and past the stream and then onto the Conkerfield until it reaches Abbey Hill near the Abbey and Netley Castle. It’s a beautiful walk and the following are some photos from it, starting at the entrance on the road that leads to Netley Castle.

A beautiful, highly recommended walk especially on a sunny day, there’s lots to see!
