Hampshire and the New Forest Year Round Walks

Hampshire and the New Forest Year Round Walks

by: Vicky Fletcher
These 20 circular walks, varying in length from 2 to 7 miles, take in renowned beauty spots, hidden gems and must-see places across Hampshire and the New Forest. The guide has been divided into seasons, so you'll find a recommendation for every day of the year. Highlight include:

Spring: Hurstbourne Tarrant with its thatched cottages, and the bluebell-carpeted nature reserves of Roydon Woods and Broughton Down.
Summer: warm-weather strolling on the South Downs and bird spotting near Sarisbury.
Autumn: the blazing colours of the heathland around Rockford and Hartley Wintney.
Winter: coastal views, cosy pubs and sea air at Netley Abbey, and the countryside of Kingsclere's famouse Watership Down.

The book is produced in full colour with lots of photographs. Each walk entry begins with a description of the terrain, Ordnance Survey Explorer map sheet references, starting point with grid reference, how to get there and parking and refreshment options. The following route finding instructions are laid out in precise numbered paragraphs and are supported by clear sketch maps showing the location of each paragraph number. For each walk an introductory description of its main features is included plus notes on what to look out for.
