One of the most pleasant walks in Emsworth is up Lumley Rd past Peter Pond then through the Brook Meadow.
A tranquil Nature Reserve that lies between the railway line and the Fishbourne road measuring approximately five acres. Home to many species of birds, particularly in the wooded areas.
Sightings of water voles used to be common but there were none in 2017 or 2018. Although recent surveys there are indications of some activity in the area.
There are a number of paths and trails through the Reserve that are popular with residents, dog walkers and birders. As well as benches where one can sit, relax and let time drift by.
