The Ashurst Walking Group is very pleased to say that we will be resuming our programme of walks from September. The group runs walks in the local area twice a month, one on a Saturday and one during the week. The walks usually last around two and a half hours and cover between four and five miles – never over any strenuous terrain – there isn’t much in the New Forest! We start the walks in well chosen car parks normally within 30 minutes drive or less from Ashurst. The routes are chosen with a view to the seasons with perhaps a view of daffodils or bluebells in the Spring and deer rutting in the Autumn.
We normally have around 10 or 15 people on the walk – no prebooking is needed
just turn up on the day and follow the leader. It’s a great way of seeing old friends
and making new ones, and particularly so after our periods of enforced separation.
We’ll be re-starting the programme on Saturday September 4th, at 10am, meeting in
the car park of the Ashurst railway station and then exploring the heathland areas
towards Lyndhurst and Matley Wood. Please come along if it sounds like you
might enjoy it. If you have any questions about the walks you can email
