    Monthly walk 17 August 2019

    10:00 am-1:30 pm
    August 17, 2019
    Bramshot Lane
    near the junction of A3013 and A327, GU51 2SH, grid reference SU833557

    Key information

    This will be an 8.5 mile walk starting from the new Bramshot Farm County Park between Farnborough and Fleet on Bramshot Lane.

    There are no stiles this month and the path surfaces are mostly good, although as always there are a few trip hazards in the woods and a few fairly steep inclines.

    Last year parking was tight but this year we will have access to the overflow car park located at the far end of the usual car park.

    The route

    We’ll cross through the 91 acres of open meadow and woodland in the park before crossing the M3 to enter Hawley Woods. Here we will visit the old running track and the hidden beach by the lake.

    We’ll climb up to cross the army Bear Pit (a site of several film locations), and old airstrip before reaching the heathland and a bronze-age barrow.

    We’ll then continue to Minley Woods and pass under some giant sequoias before climbing up to the grassland where it seems another film set is being created. We will stop to see the latest offerings at the ancient beech trees then descend back past a bridge, named as a Chimera but built for demolition, to Bramshot.
