This is a walk that we discovered more or less by accident. The Horse & Jockey is a really good pub in this area that we enjoy going to. One day we discovered a small path half hidden at the end of the car park.
The walk starts alongside the Curbridge Creek which joins soon the Hamble River. The walk goes through woodland to start with and gives you an open view over the river from time to time. On the other side of the river are many obscure fallen trees.
At some point some one must have had a lovely idea and started off what you can see here now. Although I am (fairly) grown-up, I have to say that this was a moment of magic and we spent quite some time looking at all the little gifts that have been accumulated over the years. Way to many details to see them all. I think we need to go back one day.
After walking though the woodlands you’ll soon come to some open areas with a good view over the river which becomes wider and wider now.
The doesn’t offer much more than nature and maybe some birdwatching but I thoroughly enjoyed it and I was told that the woodlands would be covered with bluebells in spring. It must look lovely then. Another good reason to come back.
