Lovely walk and trails, well maintained, it was our first visit and on the whole really enjoyed our time at Chambers - unfortunately the only thing that let it down was we came across an organised group of dog runners who had no intention of stopping or slowing down as they came hurtling past us. The lady leading the group was quite rude and simply told us that there were a number of others running behind her and we needed to move out of the way.

Not sure if the forestry commission are aware of the organised dog runs, Im all for people getting out and running/exercising their pets and chambers farm woods is a wonderful location, but it shouldnt be done at the expense of putting other walkers and their dogs in danger.

Would we come back absolutely, but probably not on a weekend if the runners are there on a regular basis

Hi Leanne, I am sorry your walk was upset by this group. They are an organised group and have permission to run there, normally Saturday mornings twice a month. The forester will speak to them about this incident. Thanks for getting in touch.

Access road is potholed but I've seen a lot worse, just take it slowly and carefully...saves having speed bumps. Did the Green Trail which does not appear to be marked at the initial trail post but was fine after that until it rejoins the main track by a seat where a confirmatory turn left with the green top post would be reassuring. Boggy in a couple of places near the start as mentioned on the map but after that it is easy walking. Plenty of variety with the usual spectrum of birds and a varied flora. Mid June and the Orchids are very good. I'll be back next time I'm in the area.

Lovely walks but the single track road leading to the site is in a dangerous condition and needs repairing. It put me off visiting again which is a shame.

Hi, The state of the road has been noticed and is programmed in to be repaired. I don't know dates at the minute but rest assured it will get done. Thanks and I hope you will visit again in the future.
