Newchurch Moors Nature Reserve
This 5 mile circular walk takes on average 2 hours at a gentle stroll.
Starting from and returning to School Lane Car Park, Newchurch, we will take an unhurried walk through Martins Wood before reaching the beautiful Eastern Yar Valley.
The walk follows the River Yar along the dismantled railway line to Alverstone Village. After the village the path leaves the river to the rich tapestry of habitats of the Eastern Yar Valley
- Floodplain meadow
- Grazed pasture
- Marshland and fen
- Broadleaf woodland.
We will walk at a leisurely pace that all can manage while improving our fitness and enjoying the sociable company.
Please bring hand sanitiser, a mask, and your own refreshments with you such as drink and light snack to eat on route.
It will be your own responsibility to maintain physical distancing when walking.
Please bring suitable clothing and footwear for the weather conditions and terrain. Wear gloves or use hand sanitiser if you touch gates or other path furniture.
