Walk Route Description

Join me & my dog, Logan (the Whippet) as we take a walk around Bolderwood in the New Forest. As well as experiencing some stunning woodland we visit the Canadian Cross War Memorial, the Radnor Stone, the Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary and even come across an enormous Ants Nest!

Walk Route: From Bolderwood Car Park follow roadside verge to the Canadian Cross Memorial on your right. Swing hard left, across the road, and take gravel track (SW) downhill. Deer sanctuary on your left. Cross a cattle grid and continue further 350 yards. Turn left on to gravel track marked with red banded wooden post. Follow track for 300yrds then as it bends sharply right, turn left on to a narrower track between two more red banded posts. A few paces on, keep to left fork where post is banded red & green. Pass fallen tree (seen on video). Some 50 yrds further on, track forks at red & green post close to silted up pond. Fork right & continue for 100yrds to a junction marked by red & green post & wooden seat. Turn left up narrow path & pass Radnor Stone then on to Deer Viewing platform & car park. Dogs need to be kept on leads due to close proximity of deer.
