Description

This is a circular walk in the National Forest that you can take either from the Conkers Discovery Centre, the Conkers Campsite, or the National Forest YHA.

We picked up a leaflet for the ‘Newfield and Stonepit Walk’ of the National Forest while staying at the Conkers Campsite. This walk takes you through some of the industrial past of the area, including the Moira canal and furnace.
However, as we found, much of the route was overgrown and difficult (or impossible) to follow on the official map – especially the Stonepit field.

This route here is our recorded route using Ordnance Survey OS Maps app of the official ‘Newfield and Stonepit Walk’ but with the route we took due to changes in footpaths since the walk’s leaflet was published.

Our Review

We did this walk while staying at the Conkers Camping and Caravanning Club campsite.
There was a ‘Newfield and Stonepit Walk’ map at the campsite, but we found that much of the route had overgrown and changed. So, we recorded our own and published it here.

Canal at Moira Furnace

The restored canel at Moira Furnance

This was quite a long walk but wasn’t particularly difficult: there were no real hills to climb.

We stopped off for some lunch, tea, coffee, and hot chocolates at the Hub Cafe at the Moira Furnace.
