The June Green Time Walk is taking place at the Eastern Yar Valley on
However car parking is free in the surrounding roads of Station Avenue, Melville, Nunwell, Leed Street, Hill Street and Grove Road.
The walk is a seven and a half mile trip typically 16,000 steps and 700 K calories.
The gentle walk leaves the car park to explore Sandown Community Orchard. Then it joins the dismantled railway line alongside the Eastern Yar River on the Red Squirrel Trail. We will then leave the river at Alverstone Village to explore the rich habitats of Newchurch Moors Nature Reserve and mixed woodland of Martin’s Wood Nature Reserve. We will head back through Alverstone Mead Nature Reserve to view and listen to the visiting kingfishers, herons, great and blue tits. We will then walk through the raised walkway just beneath a canopy of surrounding trees looking out for red squirrels. From there we return back to Sandown railway station.
Please wear either walking shoes or boots and clothing suitable to the weather. It is a good idea to bring sun-cream, plenty of drinks and some snack refreshments.
This walk is open to children accompanied by parents, young people and adults, with no upper age limit. Dogs are also very welcome.
