From Ashurst railway station this short and easy walk explores a variety of landscapes that characterise the New Forest.

Then continue along a road that winds pleasantly through ancient pasture woodland and across a grassy lawn to the historic remains of a saltpetre house. Return via a roadside cycle track to Ashurst village.
