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.
Can’t make a walk but still want to take part?
You can do your own sponsored walk – anywhere you’d like – by signing up for the Virtual Great British Walk. Simply walk your chosen distance with (or without) your dog and raise funds to help deaf people leave loneliness behind.
A great day out for all the family!
When you walk, you help people like Jocelyne…
“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!”
– Jocelyne and Kennedy
Please take part in the Great British Dog Walk and help more deaf people like Jocelyne to leave loneliness behind.
"The Great British Dog Walk is a fantastic opportunity to get yourself or your dog sponsored to raise vital funds to help deaf people leave loneliness behind." - Rachel Riley, TV presenter
