Bentley Station and The Wooden Bungalow tree walk

This walk is approximately 2.5 miles in length, parts of it over rough ground, starting and ending at the Forestry Commission car park off Gravel Hill Road. You will stop and admire magnificent examples of ten species of tree, have the opportunity to identify many more, and also to walk through the Butterfly Conservation meadow, to the start of the Shipwrights’ Way near Bentley Station.

You will skirt round the Alice Holt Arboretum housing a fine collection of trees from around the world but, in the main, you will see native species, butterflies and take a little more exercise than the Arboretum offers.

Rowledge and Holt Pound Tree Walk

This walk is approximately 2.5 miles in length, parts of it over rough ground, starting and ending at the Rowledge Recreation Ground car park in School Road. You will stop and admire magnificent examples of eight species of tree, have the opportunity to identify many more, and also to reflect on tree-related issues, such as ‘wilding’ and tree preservation.

Rowledge and Holt Pound are perched on the eastern edge of Alice Holt Forest, and were settled originally to exploit timber as a fuel and as a structural material. As the timber industry has modernised this area has lost much of its commercial importance but has become a tree museum. This is true not only of the neighbouring  Glenbervie Inclosure, maintained by Forestry England, but also of the gardens adjoining it, that have been owned by forestry folk and planted with their favourite species.
