Overview

Over Broxhead Common to Headley Park and the outskirts of Dockenfield. Return via sand quarry and less well-known parts of Broxhead Common. The road from Alton to Kingsley is being closed in stages from March onwards for new electricity cables to be installed, so check the route beforehand and maybe travel via West Worldham and Oakhanger.
