    Burley Village Walk

    Imagine a time of folklore, witches and dragons as you walk through the quaint old village of Burley, a small but scenic spot in the New Forest. The Burley Village Walk starts at the Burley War Memorial and takes you on a circular trail around the outskirts of the village, onto footpaths through the forests and up Castle Hill Road past ancient fort ruins. Along your walk you’ll cross rivers and bridges, enjoy the scenery of the New Forest, and get great views of the Avon Valley below.
