Cycle Route and Walk Closures
(Average user rating: 5 unrated 5/5)

Bishops Dyke

Crossing point Closed -The surface of this path has deteriorated, making it wet, uneven and deep.

We have done some preparatory work here to help the access recover. We may need to do some surface works here when conditions are drier. It is likely to take up to 12 months to fully recover.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused by this closure, please find an alternative route.


  Old railway line - Route Markers - 195-217 (between Setthorns campsite, Sway and Latchmoor, Brockenhurst).

This bridge is now closed to all traffic, including by foot, horse and bicycles due to safety concerns. Please follow the Green diversion signs. Cyclists are advised to dismount and walk down the decline. Please note this leads onto a shared track which pedestrians may be walking.

The bridge will be replaced soon. Sorry for any inconvenience caused by the closure and diversion.


For further information please contact the Ranger Team on 0300 067 4601

I like the new footbridge over the ford at Fletchers Water, just south of Marker 250. Very useful.
