The best way to get a true feel for the country of The Woodlanders is on foot. At any time of year it is a rewarding venture through beautiful countryside, and generally easy going.
Start from The Common at Evershot –the green at the bottom of East Hill (Holywell turning off the A37), where a seat of ancient stone is shaded by an enormous Holm Oak.
Walk distance – 7 miles
