About this walk

This is a there and back walk along the disused railway line from Burley to Holmsley Tea Rooms, in the old disused station. There are still a few remnants of the railway along the route.

The walk is mostly graveled but subject to quite a bit of waterlogging especially at the Burbush car park end, so wellies are a must except in the driest possible conditions. There are water courses too all along the route so dogs that stray from the path will get dirty!

Start point = Burbush Car Park, Pound Lane, Burley BH24 4EFDistance = 4.6miles (return)Duration = ~90+ minutes (@3mph)Elevation = 122-177ft (var 55ft)Footwear = wellies!Dog mud factor = muddy paws at best, full on dirt fest possible!Weather = suitable for all weather conditionsViews = the walk is mostly in the valley Shappen Hill & Holmsley Ridge so views are of the walk & hills either sideParking = free but there are no facilities at Burbush.
