This pretty area in Hamble-le-Rice has a waymarked trail to follow to ponds, heathland, oak woodland, meadow, salt-marsh, mudflats and a shingle beach. It's great for flora and fauna with purple moor-grass, rhododendrons and gorse. Look out for birds such as oystercatchers, turnstones, herons and ringed plovers around the mudflats and the creek.
The Strawberry Trail and the Solent Way both pass the common so you could pick up these trails to extend your walk. Head west and you can visit Royal Victoria Country Park.
