What three words: travels.procures.windmills

Duration: The walk will last up to 1.5 hours at a leisurely pace with regular watching/sniffing stops.

Accessibility: This is an outdoor event in a public space. The route is mostly gravel but some of the ground is uneven in places. There can also be some standing water (puddles) along the path and damp underfoot, so sensible footwear is essential.

Dogs: Well behaved, on-lead dogs are encouraged to join us.  

Clothing: Please wear sturdy/sensible shoes and dress appropriately for the weather (we advise warm layers and a waterproof coat!).

Our outdoor walks and activities are weather dependant. We aim to let you know by email in good time if a walk is cancelled due to bad weather. Please check your emails before leaving home.

All our walks are free, but booking is required as places are limited so please reserve your place by emailing Ranger Alice with the number of people and dogs hoping to attend (maximum of two dogs per person): Alice.Ashcroft-Dalley@hants.gov.uk
