A Mileaters Walk...
27th April 2021

27421 2a

On a beautiful April Day, 21 members and 4 dogs gather at the Car Park in Bere Regis for what was to be a most beautiful and memorable walk.

27421 2b

The route took us from Bere Regis to Shitterton, through May's Wood (101,000 trees planted by Queen guitarist Brian May in 2016) and onto Black Hill, along the ridge with splendid views of Bere Regis and Briantspuddle. We then followed the track down into Turners Puddle, past the pretty now 27421 2cdeconsecrated Church of the Holy Trinity at Turnerspuddle and on westerly before turning alongside the River Piddle towards Throop. After a coffee stop and an exhi bition Gymnastics on a tree swing by Cathie and Nick at Throop we returned to Turnerspuddle.

Passing a beautiful ‘carpet’ of Summer Snowflakes, a rare plant found only in this area. Turning north we entered the 27421 2gbeautiful woods absolutely covered in Bluebells, Wood Anemones and violets. The trail took us up over Black Hill 

Clump and down towards Rowlands Wait Caravan Park. Just past the end of the Park we stopped to have our 'Picnic Lunch' in a stunning glade covered once again with masses of Bluebells. From there it is was a short walk down the side of Black Hill, back into Bere Regis alongside the watercress beds.27421 2f

The proliferation of Bluebells, Summer Snowflakes, Wood Anemones, Celandine, Violets, Red Campion, Marsh Marigolds, Garlic Mustard, Primroses, were a Botanist's delight! Accompanied by serenades from the singing Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs and the splendid sight of the Roe Deer made this a walk to remember.
