Distance

2 MILES (3KM) – Circular

Categories

This short circular walk starts from the Whitefield Moor car park and follows the path to Puttles Bridge. It joins  the tranquil Ober Water stream as it meanders gently through the Aldridgehill woodland.

Ober Water originates in the bogland around Burley and joins the Highland Water to eventually become the Lymington River.

The bridge at Puttles Bridge car park is currently undergoing repairs – a diversion can be made along the roadside.

Route

From the Whitefield Moor car park follow the path across the grassland, close to the road, until you reach Puttles Bridge. After a game of Pooh Sticks, continue across the bridge, walk through the car park and follow the marked footpath.

Continue past the first footbridge over the Ober Water after 500m. When you reach the second footbridge – after another 500m – turn right and cross the bridge. Follow the path on to Whitefield Moor.

Head along the bottom of the grassy bank (which can be boggy following wet weather) to return to Whitefield Moor car park.
