Walk details

Meet Point:

We shall meet outside Sandhurst station towards the High Street (Platform 2 side) but not to block the path we can congregate on top of the private road also called the High Street, which if coming station from Platform 1 as you exit go left and underneath the arch towards the High Street or if coming from Platform 2 turn left as you exit and walk towards the High Street and I’ll probably wave at you.

Walk Details:

From here we take the Blackwater Valley Path which we shall take until we reach Sandhurst Memorial Park. We then cross into Wildmoor Heath Nature Reserve (this path can be muddy even in summer) and this leads us into Edgbarrow Woods. We head back to the station via some residential roads.

I have set this walk as easy but note there are a couple of ups and downs.
