    Route Description for Finchdean Walk

    Finchdean Walk is a lovely walk that takes you through wooded areas and showcases some stunning views. Finchdean is a very small town with just one pub, and across from this pub is a red telephone box that marks the beginning of the trail. Continuing on the path, you will see glimpses of Solent, a stunning view of the ocean and the strait that separates the Isle of Wight from the rest of Great Britain.

    As you follow the path, about halfway through, you will stumble upon expansive views of St. Hubert Church, and you will be able to go up and take a seat if you wish to take a break. Continue following the path until you reach the spot where you began.
