Updated 23rd November 2022

Longslade bridges replacement

Old railway line -  This route will be closed from way-marker number 217 at Latchmoor Bridge going west to way-marker 195 at Setthorns Campsite. Cyclists are advised to access the route at another location using the New Forest cycle route map. Cycling in the New Forest is permitted only on the approved network.

Bolderford Bridge repairs

Bolderfood Bridge, between way-marker numbers 262 and 264, is closed for safety and awaiting repairs. Unfortunately, a sinkhole has appeared in front of the bridge, making it unsafe.  We’re sorry for any inconvenience and ask everyone to use an alternative route while we work to ensure the bridge is safe.

Walking trail closures

  • Old railway line -  The walking route will also be closed from Latchmoor Bridge going west to Setthorns Campsite. Longslade Bottom and Longslade View car parks will be closed during the bridge replacement works.
