One of the joys of having a Hound is finding new places for “walkies” and recently, on a friend’s recommendation, I discovered Creech Wood, Denmead.
Like Queen’s Enclosure and Park Wood, Waterlooville, it is another remnant of the Forest of Bere that used to cover southern England. Operated by the Forestry Commission, Creech Wood is 185 hectares in size and is split in two by Bunkers Hill Road which incidentally, is where you find the car park. It’s mainly a coniferous woodland with some areas of beech and oak trees. Very pretty & well maintained, there’s an added bonus of a children’s playground there too to keep the rug rats happy!
