Homebuilder provides its top five walking locations in Aldershot for National Walking Month

For National Walking Month, Hampshire developer David Wilson Homes Southern is offering a list of scenic walks near its Bruneval Gardens development in Aldershot.

National Walking Month – which lasts through the whole of the month of May and is run by health charity Living Streets – aims to get people out into their local area, be active and appreciate all nature has to offer while taking a peaceful walk.

This year’s theme is #Try20, and Living Streets is encouraging everyone who is capable to try walking for a minimum of 20 minutes a day for the duration of the month.

David Wilson Homes’ Bruneval Gardens development, located on Pennefather’s Road, is ideally placed for both short and long walks in a variety of environments ranging from a casual stroll around Rowhill Nature Reserve, all the way to an extended walk along the Basingstoke Canal.

For those new to the area, David Wilson Homes has curated a list of recommended walks in the local area:


Walk through the town of Aldershot

  • Once a former village, Aldershot is known as being ‘the home of the British Army’ which offers fascinating insight into military history. A walk from our Bruneval Gardens along the High Street and back is the perfect length for the #Try20 challenge, and a great opportunity to view the thriving new neighbourhood.

Adventure through the Wellesley Woodlands

  • This stunning beauty spot is a fantastic place to enjoy a longer walk, perhaps over the weekend, with over 100 hectares of woodlands, wildlife habitats and lakes to explore. We recommend trying out one of the six routes around the area including the Chesnut, Oak, Beech, Plane, Holy and Birch Trails.

Farnham Park

  • Located a three mile walk from the development, this family-friendly location has plenty of opportunities for a leisurely walk, while taking in the scenery. It is the perfect spot for a picnic, with a café serving snacks, drinks, and lunches to take away.

Brickfields Country Park

  • One of the smallest country parks in Britain, this hidden gem is situated just over a mile from Bruneval Gardens and is perfect for a peaceful stroll. Enjoy walking through the many pathways across the area, as well as feeding the ducks in the nearby pond.

A variety of new homes are available at Bruneval Gardens, with David Wilson Homes offering a diverse range of one and two bedroom properties suitable for first-time buyers, professional couples and growing families.
