Terrain: All-weather gravel tracks. Considered buggy and wheelchair accessible, but can be bumpy with one moderate incline. Common land has open and shaded parts.

Parking: Parking is avaliable and free.

More: Foxbury is a 150 hectare area of conservation on the edge of East Wellow and adjacent to our Bramshaw Commons. Acquired in 2005 through Grantscape funding, the site which was once a commercial conifer plantation is gradually being returned to the heathland habitat it once was. This is a gated part of the forest, and is only avaliable with a ticket so it will be an exclusive for GBDW walkers.

Other Facilities: Toilets

Because of the number of dogs expected, we do ask that dogs are kept on lead for the duration of the walk.

*Please note we are taking advance bookings online only. We will not be taking bookings on the day.

When you walk, you help people like Jocelyne… 

Jocelyn Kennedy 600x500.jpg

My hearing dog Kennedy does so much more than alert me to sounds. He gives me great confidence and independence, not only at home but also out and about, and he brings me so much happiness. He truly is a life-changer!
