Walk Description:

SATURDAY STRIDER The Woodgreen Wander!

Starting at Woodgreen Common, we enter the beautifully atmospheric Godshill Inclosure before dropping down into Millersford Bottom. We then follow the stream to Miller’s Ford itself and then head up to Hale Purlieu through Millersford Copse, returning to Woodgreen via Lady’s Mile. (NOTE: the terrain can be very boggy and slippery after wet weather – not a walk for trainers!).

Millersford Plantation, to the south east of Hale Purlieu, is comprised of Scots Pine and Spruce. It is now being cleared of conifers and reclaimed as heathland. Millersford Copse in the south west of the Plantation is a small pocket of deciduous woodland. Miller’s Ford itself was an important crossing point across the marshy valley providing access between Woodgreen and, as the name suggests, Breamore Mill and all points south and east.

Please note:

This is quite a long route with hills in the middle and end so can be quite strenuous. There are several stiles to cross and the very real possibility of encountering New Forest grazing livestock such as ponies, cows and donkeys. Dogs are welcome but there will be long stretches where they must be on a lead so please make sure you are confident and safe with dogs on a lead when using poles and around livestock.

Our Saturday Strider Walks are of a longer duration than those during the week and can be either in the morning or afternoon, or sometimes all day and are for all walkers, Nordic and non-Nordic!

These walks are for those who are confident with Nordic Walking at a steady/moderate pace and can tackle hills without too much trouble.If you are not a Nordic Walker, then please do come along and join us (you will still need to register and book as usual).The walks are not suitable for those starting out on their fitness journey or who require regular breaks. 

Please bring a drink and a snack in a bumbag or backpack (not a shoulder bag) as we will stop half way for a breather while taking in the views.

Please contact Janet if you need more information as to whether this walk is for you.
