Frensham Great Pond

Frensham Great Pond

The good weather continued for yesterday morning’s 4½ mile walk. There were twenty-two on the walk. We started from the car park by the NT visitor centre at Frensham Great Pond and followed a bridleway that went north and then east to cross the A287 to Frensham Common. Here we continued on a path to reach a ridge and then headed downhill to Frensham Little Pond. There were several swimmers in the pond (dogs).

We walked round FLP. At the SE corner of the pond we left the footpath and took a path that joined a byway where we turned right and crossed a ford before branching left on a bridleway. Shortly after this we stopped for coffee in a clearing. Stumps of felled conifers made convenient seats. We continued on the bridleway, turned right at a junction of paths to head north and then turned left to head west on a narrow path that passed the Roberstons’ memorial. Continuing slightly downhill we reached a bridleway that ran parallel to the A287. Here we turned right, crossed the road beyond the northern edge of FGP and headed back to the car park. Families had arrived for picnics and children splashed in the water.
