Distance of walk  5.75miles ( approx. 3 hours)
Where we will walk Circular walk from Binsted via Blacknest
Terrain Slightly hilly in parts but with some good long views Varied terrain from field paths to woodland ( we take in the edge of Alice Holt Forest for a bit ) tracks and bridal ways. There is one shortish stretch of B road to get into Blacknest village. When I walked it, it was in the main reasonably firm with some short sticky stretches. With the “rainy season “on us however gaiters over -trousers and poles may be a useful addition.

I think that this was a walk which the Club did 5/6 years ago so some of you of that vintage may recall it.
