Field Meetings


                             Field Meetings Summer 2019

Field meetings take place every other Thursday throughout the year and on the first Sunday of every month from October to March. They normally start at 10.00 and last about 2h 30m. There are also occasional special meetings.

The terrain in the New Forest is often wet and boggy. Members are advised to wear sturdy footwear and to be prepared for inclement weather, including appropriate clothing. A packed lunch is recommended for walks continuing beyond lunchtime. Do please take care and enjoy the walks but remember that responsibility for personal safety lies with the individual not the Society.

The leader for the walk undertakes to be at the walk venue and will make any final decision on the scope of the walk based on the prevailing conditions. If the weather is uncertain, especially for a longer distance or weekend meeting, please check with the leader that the meeting will be going ahead before setting out.

If a car park is closed during the winter an alternative will be found and everyone notified; someone will be at the closed car park to re-direct. Ensure that cars are left secure and with all valuables stored out of sight

Map references are given from the Ordnance Survey New Forest Explorer OL22 map.

Non-members £3 per meeting.                            No DOGS please.
