Tennyson Down is a grassy, whale-backed ridge of chalk which rises to 482 ft/147m above sea level. Tennyson Down is named after the poet Lord Tennyson who lived at nearby Farringdon House for nearly 40 years. The poet used to walk on the down almost every day, saying that the air was worth ‘sixpence a pint’.
