Walks in the New Forest and other places!
A site to record my walks, mainly in the New Forest and sometimes in other places.
I have lived in or near to the New Forest for over 40 years. I have memories of walking in the forest both as a child as well as from sometime in the last few days!
Several years ago, I realised that as a family, we tend to go back to the same places again and again. We set out to explore more of the New Forest and find new walks and new favourite places. Through this blog I hope to record walks (eventually) from all of the main car parks within the national park.
Much of our walking takes place on the cycle path network which covers most of the national park. There are a couple of reasons for this. Firstly it is to protect my feet! I’ve had some difficulties with my feet and sticking mainly to the cycle tracks generally means a good level ish surface to walk on. Secondly, because these are mostly gravelled tracks, they are accessible throughout the year.
I like to take photographs while I am out walking but am by no means an expert photographer. Any photos shown on this site are my own and will generally have been taken on my phone.
