Getting There

A circular walk taking in the villages of Lower Froyle and Well in Hampshire. Lower Froyle is a characterful village that refuses to be trapped in any era. Ancient timbered and thatched cottages sit alongside modern brick properties, while the village duck pond and pastures of traditional black sheep contrast with the large modern crop fields and contemporary village hall. The walking route itself makes use of the local ancient lanes, now hedge-lined tracks that act as quiet thoroughfares for walkers and cyclists to discover the peaceful surrounds. The walk has several steady climbs and descents throughout. Some of the paths can get very muddy at times so good boots are a must. Most of the route follows wide green tracks, but you will also need to cross a couple of crop fields and a few sections of path can get overgrown in the height of the growing season. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus one stile (which has a large fence gap alongside for dogs to pass through). There is no livestock on route and the enclosed tracks mean that well-behaved dogs can enjoy plenty of off-lead time. There is a half mile stretch along a country lane so take care of traffic at this point. Allow 3 hours.

Lower Froyle is located about 4 miles northeast of Alton, just off the A31 road. The walk starts and finishes at the small car park in front of the village hall. If you are coming by bus, there is a bus stop directly outside the village hall. By car, head south along the A31 from Farnham, leave at the exit signed to Bentley and turn right to reach the crossroads in Bentley. Turn left and follow this road heading west and then north leading you into Lower Froyle. Ignore the first side road on the left, Park Road, and take the second one (signed to Upper Froyle). Just a little way along you will come to the village hall on your left. Approximate post code GU34 4LQ.

Uninspiring trail. Interest is limited to the start and finish in the village. Rest of walk is tracks mainly with no views. Won't be back for this trail but hope there are better ones nearby. Ducks are cute though...

Lovely walk but today, (12/11/2020), the top of Frogs Lane (near to Well) totally flooded, not passable in boots, waterproofs up to knee required. Suggest you avoid this route if there has been recent heavy rain.

Great walk in the countryside only downside was some walking on tarmac country lanes. Some of the byways had very uneven or stony surfaces making walking tricky. Very quiet throughout except when on roads.

Great and muddy walk, really peaceful and very beautiful very English countryside, will definitely do this walk again in the summer.
