Walking from Beaulieu, along the Beaulieu River, passing through Bucklers Hard, once called Montagu Town. Originally built for the sugar trade with the West Indies, but more famously as a dock yard for the Royal Navy. Where ships were built from New Forest Oak mainly during the Napoleonic wars, 3 of which were used in the battle of Trafalgar. Following on from here, we head south and then west towards Lymington, mainly on lanes. Cutting up by Sowley Pond we will then start to get back into the heathland and moors of the New Forest, circling round and ending back up in Beaulieu. See the route here.

James has put on a social event in Southampton for Saturday evening - should you wish to link the 2 events.

Dogs are welcome to join us on this event but we do ask the following:
Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)
If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour.
