Step 1: This walk starts at Swaythling station but anywhere nearby would be a great place to start the walk and do the loop. Buses and trains to Southampton can be caught from here. There is a community cafe en route too.
Step 2: Turn right out of the station and walk down Wessex Lane. Look out for the left hand turn down Westbrook Way.
Step 3: When you spot the Manbridge sign, you’re there, turn into Westbrook Way.
Step 4: Walk down to the end where you will come across a small bridge that crosses over Monks Brook.
Step 5: Cross over the bridge. This picture looks back over the bridge. Notice the beautiful weeping willow tree.
Step 6: Turn directly left after crossing the bridge and follow the path alongside the Brook. It may be a little muddy.
