Fancy a Ramble?

Cove Brook Greenway Group’s work party organizer Paul Sanders will be leading a walk on Sunday 13th October. It’s a fascinating 10-mile ramble around the old RAE perimeter and through the old ‘factory’ area. The route also includes stretches along the Basingstoke Canal, Cove Brook and Southwood Woodland. It should take about four hours.

It starts at 10am at the KenneIs Lane entrance to Southwood Woodland. There is parking there, or you can park just across Iveley Road at the QinetiQ car park.  As ever, dress for the weather and be prepared for mud if it has been raining.


About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
