Route Description for Brockenhurst Village Walk

The Brockenhurst Village Walk is a circular route that takes you through the downtown area of Brockenhurst and onto gravel paths through grassy plains and woodlands. Starting from Brookley Road, you’ll cross the watersplash via the footbridge and turn right on to Rhinefield Road. When you see St. Anne’s Church on your right, follow the gravel path that crosses Meerut Road and the wide-open grass lawn where it’s common to see cattle, ponies and pigs grazing.

When you reach the forest, take the path on your right and follow this to waymarker post 264. Soon you’ll reach Bolderford Bridge which crosses the Lymington River. From the bridge, you backtrack to the grassy plain and keep following the trail until you reach Ober Corner and the car park.

Shortly after the car park, you turn right onto a small path that crosses the Ober Water river and the Aldridge Hill cottage. After this, you turn left onto a small path into the woods with a small cast-iron tombstone, a Victorian boundary marker. You’ll cross a bridge over the river and then take another left, which leads you towards Beachern Woods. When you reach Rhinefield Road, follow N Weirs Road south, which goes all the way around the edge of the village and connects to Burley Road. Follow Burley Road back into town to end the route.
