Lightwater Country Park is situated on the edge of Lightwater Village and extends to 59 hectares. The Country Park is predominately heathland habitat, but there are also ponds, woodland, shrubs and lowland bog. These habitats offer the opportunity to observe a wide variety of wildlife, birds, mammals, plants and insects. Dog walkers should note that due to the ground nesting birds in the heath, dogs are to be kept on leads from 1st March – 31st July for a small section of the walk. There are no stiles or gates and just one fairly steep but short climb up a stepped woodland path near the start. There are toilets available at the start of the walk. Approximate time 1 hour.

Lovely walk through woods and by lakes and distant but good views from the hill of the London skyline and the Ascot racecourse. Plenty of path options to make the walk shorter or longer.

Lovely walk. Varied and interesting. But for me it was spoilt by the constant noise from the nearby M3.
