Located Pondtail (25th February 2008)

My 2nd cycle ride of 2008. Went to The Foresters again. This time I followed the road, more or less, ending up at the double bridge near Pyestock.

Rode over the bridge and found a deliberate gap in the fence on the left, without signposts. Followed it into a cool area of woodland with steep tracks. A gentle track led to the canal.

Followed towpath back towards Fleet. Went over an overflow which drains into a pool, which in turn drains over a weir into a stream.

Continued for some while and arrived at the bridge by Pontail. A path to the right of the bridge led to the junction with traffic lights.
