This is a 3 mile circular walk around the Wilverley Enclosure (spelt both inclosure and enclosure on the local signs) in the New Forest, Hampshire.

The walk is largely flat and on man-made paths. The sections on more natural paths can be muddy at times, but alternative by-passes for these areas can usually be found. You will need to negotiate a few wide gates, but there are no kissing gates or stiles on route.

From the A31 take the road to Burley, Ringwood Road. Stay on this road as it weaves through Burley. Continue on this road as it exits Burley now called School Hill. In one kilometre bear right on the same road now called Station Road. After passing Holmsley Old Station continue ahead on the same road for 1.7 miles and, when you reach a sign on the right pointing to Wilverley Scout Camp on the left, turn left. In about 200 metres park in the parking area where there is a voluntary payment scheme. (The post code BH24 4HY will take you to the Old Station from where you can follow these directions).

Start by going through the main 5-bar gate with the 'Scout Camp Access' sign on it (this is in-line with the direction that you drove into the parking area). Follow the gravel track straight ahead, ignoring the left turn about 100 metres after the gate.

Stay on this main track through the trees, ignoring any junctions. There are plenty of wooden benches on this route.

In 1.7km, you will come to the point where you have to double-back on yourself to the left. There is a green/yellow walk marker and a cycle route marker. (If you see a marker on the left pointing to the Scouts you have come too far.)

Once you've doubled-back, the track goes downhill and levels out at a small crossroads and clearing. There is a wooden bench on the left (dedicated to Josephine Collins). Turn right here off of the gravel track.

The track takes you down a dip, over a small crossroads and into the pine trees. It can get a bit boggy in places, especially through the dense woodland.

After 500 metres or so, you will come to a wooden 5-bar gate at the edge of the enclosure. Go through this and turn immediately left to continue the walk in-line with some power lines.

Follow the enclosure fence until you come to another 5-bar gate, about 400 metres after the first one. Turn left through this to enter the enclosure again here.

Continue along the path until you reach the small crossroads that you passed over earlier. Turn right here and continue until you meet the gravel path from your outward leg. Turn right along the gravel path.

After about 1km or so, you will come to a major fork in the track. Take the left-hand branch, going uphill. Keep on this track for another 1km or so and you will come to a T-junction. Turn right and you are back at the car park where the walk began.
