Limebrook Farm Livery Yard
 
 
This will take about 1  hours

Leave Limebrook via the back gate and you can canter the length of the track until it reaches the tarmac section at the top.

Continue until you reach the road (be careful going either side of the gate at the end)

Turn Left

Continue along Lodge Road passing the 'New Field' and the 'Livery Field' on your left

Take the left hand fork in the road and follow it round past the chicken hatchery until you reach Hazeleigh Woods.

Depending on the weather the woods may be open or closed. If the board and rope is not across the entrance on the left turn left into the woods and stay on the track, otherwise a steady canter is possible along the verge.



Upon exiting the woods turn left and go about 10 yards down the road until you can turn right onto the signed bridleway.

Dependant on the ground conditions, a good length uphill canter is available at this point, but ensure you pull up before you reach the top of the track as there is a sharp S bend which may unseat you.

Follow the track around the S bend and through the gap in the hedge, the bridleway continues over the hill and down the other side crossing a wooden bridge (which can be slippery) back onto tarmac road.

At the end of the tarmac road, turn left on the main road
(This can be quite fast)

Continue along the main road until you reach Lodge Lane on your right

Turn right and follow Lodge Lane to it's end

Turn right and follow Birchwood Road down hill into Purleigh village.

When you reach the centre of the village (old telephone exchange on left) follow the road around to the left and you will pass the school.

The road then rejoins the main Purleigh road, continue left/straight on at the junction

When you reach the old Queens Head pub, you can either turn back down the track you came out of and then enjoy a long canter back up spa hill and down the side of Hazeleigh woods

OR

Follow the road along past several farms and the Edgewood vets, you will come to Hazeleigh crossroads. Turn Right and follow this back past the livery field back to the farm.
- Be aware that the down hill bits of the road are quite slippery even when dry.
