Post lockdown, in April we went walking at Horseshoe Lake in Sandhurst. We did a whole loop of the lake, which is 1.2 miles. Where did we walk? From the free car park (details at the end of this post) we went left to meet up with the footpath (walking away from Horseshoe Lake Activity Centre). We then followed the path which had the River Blackwater on our left and Horseshoe Lake could be seen through the trees to the right. We followed the path to the kissing gate. At this point you could have gone left and continued following…

Where did we walk? From the lay-by where you park, we headed onto the heathland to the left of the car. Here there was a stone which showed you how far away local town were. Then we walked directly ahead to one of the vantage points and my eldest…
