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.

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