Starting the walk with a tour of the West Solent Solar Farm you will walk amongst the panels on the solar field and find out about how solar power is generated and sent to the grid.

A 2 km walk takes you across fairly flat land, over a few stiles and on to the Mill.

Efford Mill. There has been a mill on this site since before the Norman Conquest. Although the old mill waterwheel is under restoration, the mill pond, leat and sluice gates are fully functional. There is also an example of a ground source heat pump on the site.

There is a slightly different 2 km walk back to the Solar Farm.

Tickets are £5 each and can be purchased from Eventbrite.co.uk

(The order of the walk may differ if a large group is split into 2 smaller ones)

Not suitable for dogs - as the solar farm has sheep grazing the field.

Complimentary tea/coffee provided at the Mill.

The Tour is being organised by members of New Forest Transitioni and West Solent Solar Cooperative.

This event is part of the New Forest National Park's Walking Festival 2017.
