Listen to the tree trail audio that will guide you and tell you about the 12 native trees within Warsash Common.

The poetry path runs parallel with the tree trail and incorporates poems and Haiku about the natural environment. They are written by local residents and pupils from schools within the Borough and there are six poetry posts and two poetry trees around the site. The poems are changed regularly to encourage those who write the poems, as well and friends and family, to walk the path, find their work and read the poems.

The tree trail and poetry path form a self-guided circular walk around the Warsash Common Local Nature Reserve which is approximately 1.5km in length. The terrain varies significantly but on the whole the paths are passible throughout the year.

The walk incorporates a wide variety of different habitats which includes open grasslands, water bodies as well as wet and dry woodlands.
