Walk Route Description

A New Forest Walk with my dog, Logan (the Whippet) visiting the village of Burley in Hampshire. Our walk takes us South of the village to Shappen Hill, along a disused railway line to Church Moor and up to the Castle Hill Iron Age hillfort. Along the way we come across the wonderful sight (and sound) of Fallow Deer rutting.
