Good Friday Walk: Frensham Ponds

Join me for this lovely walk with stunning views of both Frensham Little Pond and Frensham Great Pond. The heather and flowering yellow gorse make this a particularly attractive area, besides of course the beautiful lakes.  The walk is about 4 miles long with a couple of gentle uphill sections.  We will stop at Frensham Great Pond picnic area,  for lunch, which also boasts toilets and a food shop.  You can bring your own food and drink to consume at the tables outside, or buy hot snacks or cold food and drink (including tea and coffee) plus ice creams, from the shop. Dogs can be brought along.

PLEASE NOTE:  There are two car parks along Priory Lane.  Please park in the SECOND car park along the lane (Frensham Little Pond car park) not the first one (Priory Lane Corner).  Drive slowly inside the car park as there are a couple of potholes and bumps.  

The walk will be at a leisurely pace.  My number is[masked] if you need to phone me.

      Really enjoyed looking at the photos last night. Dartford Warbler photo is incredible, and such creative captions made me feel as if I had been on the walk. Could Mr Warbler enter a photo competition?

    Thanks Caroline for giving us a chance to get out in the (warm) sunshine, glad I put the sun cream on but I didn't need the desert survival kit I had stowed in my back pack... definitely a Good Friday!

    I hope you all enjoyed the walk I enjoyed the sunshine and the lake but missed your company. That will teach me not to be late in future.

    I've just clicked on the link for the map and Google Maps seems to think the postcode is right in the middle of Frensham Great Pond! That might explain where all that missing post has gone... Interestingly, the satnav says the postcode is (correctly) in Priory Lane... Do ensure you are going to Frensham Little Pond in Priory Lane as per the instructions...

    • Pauline M.

      Harry, not sure what you clicked onto - but the link above takes you to the side of Little Pond

      Perhaps it's just Mr Google trying to drown me!

    My first Meetup event. Eek! :-) Hope the weather's good.

      The weather forecast for Friday is pretty awful...
      Constant blinding sunshine with wall to wall blue skies and high temperatures too... With so little woodland cover for shade at Frensham it'll be like walking in the Arizona desert there! I hope the picnic stop is under cover or better still, underground? I'm inclined to melt if left in the sun :-)

      April 14, 2014

    • Caroline B.

      Hi Sharmeen, yes there is an area of grass for rounders /football which is near the picnic area.
