Walk Route Description

Dave and his dog Logan (the Whippet) make a New Forest walk at Fritham. As well as some spectacular woodland scenery, we come across the site of an old Gunpowder Factory, a Roman Road, an idyllic lake and a building that looks like a bus shelter in the middle of nowhere but in fact is something completely different. Along the way we meet some New Forest Ponies and catch a "small glimpse" of some deer.
