What you’ll find there…

Our favourite places tend to be those with a sense of discovery. Bassetts Mead may be small, but it definitely delivers. The path along the river bank, outside the fence, is a prime location, especially on a hot day when dragonflies are on patrol. Explore also the meadows, ponds and copse, where excellent information boards tell you all about the river and the flora and fauna of this lovely little place.

Dog walkers may find it useful to know that Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust graze the meadow with cattle.

If you’d like to explore further, you can cross the busy A30 at the Crooked Billet pub and visit Whitewater Meadows. This route shows the walk starting at Whitewater Meadows but can easily be adapted:
