A trip to the New Forest Walk (travelling by train from Southampton Central Staion). Please meet the group at the station at 9.25am.
The train will leave Southampton Central station at 9:54 a.m. to Ashurst. You will need to bring money for train fare (£4.90 off peak return). Please arrive at the train station (Asda / Toys R Us side, where the U1C bus stops) to sort tickets at approximately 9:25 a.m.
Once we arrive in Ashurt, we will walk for approximately 2 hours after which you are free to stay in Ashurst (there is a pub, and a cafe, and a few other shops) or get the train back, there is a train at 18 minutes past every hour from Ashurst to Southampton Central.
The walk will be through the New Forest, mostly along gravel paths, but some sections may include grassy areas (which may be muddy).
Please ensure you are wearing suitable shoes especially as it may be muddy at this time of year (trainers, wellies or sturdy flat shoes – no high heels!) and a warm and waterproof coat as it will be cold outside.
Places need to be booked in advance – please register on eventbrite
