The guided Group Walks have had to be suspended while we all battle with Covid.  To encourage everyone to keep walking in the permitted Small Bubbles, with just one other person or just by yourself we are reissuing a selection of the RFFS Walks leaflets and those from Hampshire County Council's Countryside series - on-line and free of charge. You can be guided around some of our most attractive walks for an hour or two - just by printing the leaflets out on your own computer - or saving them to take with you on your iPad, tablet or phone.


Winter weather can make access difficult along some paths.  In particular the water-meadows are liable to flooding after heavy rain.  Take care and don't take risks.  If you are walking by yourself make sure that someone else knows where you are going.  RFFS cannot accept responsibility for conditions on any of the Rights of Way.


The circular walks are:


From Fordingbridge to Bickton and Stuckton - about 4 miles - just click to download

















Ringwood, Rockford Common and Beyond - about 3.5 miles - just click to download


NB In paragraph 4 of the Directions please note a suggestion for an alternative path - "Bear left for about 500m downhill; there is a drier path to the east of the very damp hollow way leading to a gate."



If you come across a problem on a right-of-way please inform the Footpath Secretary, Kelvin Winch, as soon as possible, using the form on the next page.
