Walk Route Description

A New Forest Walk with my dog, Logan (the Whippet) with an exploration of the Blackwater Tall Tree Trail (near Lyndhurst, Hampshire). During our walk we come across the tallest tree in England, a WW2 Bomb crater and finish our journey with a stroll around the Arboretum. Oh...and we meet a couple of cute pigs as well.
