The Wetland Walk guides you through a section of the River Yar and along a network of waterways which we have enhanced for water voles and kingfishers. Gift to Nature has restored a community orchard on the site which you are welcome to visit and scrump in the autumn – we have included Isle of Wight fruit varieties including the Alverstone Apple.
The Wetland Walk can be started at the Orchard next to Southern Water’s Supply Works.
From Sandown Station on foot, turn right out of the station and right again under the subway. Turn right along Perowne Way and join the Wetland Walk where the Route 23 Cycle way meets Perowne Way.
The walk and orchard adjoin National Cycle Route 23 extending from Cowes to Sandown.
Use the Stop at Perowne Way Shops and join the Wetland Walk where the Route 23 Cycle way meets Perowne Way.
To get there from Newport by car follow signs for Sandown and Lake until the traffic lights in Lake. Turn left and follow Lake road until it bends to the right. Turn left into the Fairway before you go under the railway bridge. Go past Sandown High School and Golf Club until you come into the Water Supply Works and park on the right.
