Sheepwash Road leading to Hazleton Common

LOCALITY: Cowplain, Hampshire
DISTANCE: 2.5 miles (4.02 km)
FACILITIES: There & back

GRADIENT: A few ups & downs
OS MAP: Chichester

Walk description:

Park at the further end of Padnell Road. Continue along Padnell Road and into the private driveway of Padnell Grange. Green railings will appear on the right, continue down the drive.

When the railings stop and the drive curves to the right take the gravel road off to the left. This is Sheepwash Road.

Walk along a downhill gradient, and you will come to a concrete bridge over a stream. The track then goes up a steep hill, before it levels out. As you continue along Sheepwash Road you will have the A3M on your right and Hazleton Common on the left.

When you come to the second metal gate on your left, go through the large wooden gate on the left of the metal gate, or through the kissing gate to the right. (The metal gate is RADAR but the padlock is seized up).

Follow the gravel path through Hazleton Common then through the Metal RADAR gate and into HollyBank Close. Alternatively there is a kissing gate to the right of the kissing gate. Next walk up to the T junction and turn right into Greenfield Crescent. Then take the first right into Cedar Crescent then the first Right into Hillview.

At the end of the Hillview, go through the metal RADAR gate, or through the kissing gate next to it. Now follow the gravel track through Hazleton Common, and then exit via the metal RADAR gate. You are now back in Sheepwash Rd, turn right to take you back to Padnell Roadd.

Additional notes:

There is only road side parking for this walk. Best parking is in Padnell Rd (as per walk) or Hollybank Close. I would describe the gradient as undulating. When next to the A3M the traffic noise is a bit obtrusive. Hazleton Common is a lovely area to walk in but beware once off the gravel tracks it is a bit marshy.

Walks With Buggies User Reviews

A pleasant stroll

17/08/2009 | Reviewed by cathy nettley

Sheepwash Road is suitable for wheelchair and buggies but manual wheelchairs will need an able body pusher due
to the up and downhill parts of the walk. Hazleton Common is also suitable, but if you have to use the kissing
gates they are not suitable for double buggies as not wide enough.

In Hazleton Common there is
a lot of wild life and plant life to see.
