This circular walk in the New Forest starts and finishes at Lymington Town station. The short walk offers a taste of the Solent Way trail, a coastal route stretching 60 miles from Milford-on-Sea to Emsworth Harbour. You can also take in the bustling market town and yachting centre of Lymington, with its pretty cobbled streets, and even pick up a bargain or two at the Saturday market, before heading to the tranquillity of the Lymington-Keyhaven Nature Reserve, home to wetland birds, plants and animals. Other points of interest on this walk are a 13th-century church and the historic salterns or salt marshes.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 1 hour 56 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 517 calories will be burnt.
