Breamore Mill - Breamore Station - South Charford - Breamore

The village of Breamore, just north of Fordingbridge, has many interesting features which this route attempts to include in one easy walk. The route starts at Breamore Mill where, on a sunny day, you can take in the view along the river from one of the two bridges over it. Heading back towards Breamore itself, you first visit Breamore Railway Station. This opened in 1866 and closed in 1964 and has now been restored. The disused railway track running north from the station has been cleared by local walking groups and the walk follows this for about a mile, before turning west over fields to cross the busy A338 and head towards Breamore House. There are fine views of the house before going through the churchyard, with an opportunity to look around the fine Saxon church of St Mary's. Leaving the churchyard, you pass (or possibly stop off at) the tea rooms and then go out into the village with little groups of thatched cottages along its lanes. The walk next takes you past the cricket pitch and pavilion, across the village green and back to the A338 at the Bat and Ball pub, where the eagle-eyed will spot the ancient village stocks in the hedge opposite. From here it is a short stroll back past the station and mill to where you started the walk.

Did this walk on a hot day in mid-June. The disused railway part of the walk was extremely overgrown with nettles, thistles, brambles and long grass (almost waist high. The kissing gates and the entrance to the woods was also very overgrown. Best to wear trainers, socks and long trousers if walking this route in the summer months.

Check the opening times for the museum and tea room near Brearmore House beforehand if you want to visit them - not open Saturdays, for instance, even 'in season'. No problems following the route. Crossing the A338 twice were the worst bits.

Very nice flat walk, 80% dog off lead.

Thanks to Peter for posting this walk, plenty to see particularly if you're interested in old buildings. The first time I have seen kingfishers for a long time, not one but two together. This walk is a nice, gentle stroll with no change in terrain and can be accomplished by any fit person in the family.
