Loxwood Walk 1 - Brewhurst Lock and Mill - 1 mile

This easy, flat 1-mile walk is a chance to see a small section of the Loxwood Link section of the canal, one lock and a pretty and quiet part of the village incorporating the hamlet of Brewhurst and Brewhurst Mill.

From the Canal Centre walk along the towpath, heading east towards Brewhurst Lock (A). Brewhurst lock was first restored by the Trust during 1994-1997. Its curious back to front appearance resulted from the lowering of the canal in 2006 to enable the building of the new bridge to take the canal under Loxwood High Street.

From the lock continue along the towpath to Brewhurst Bridge (B). Turn right here, to walk away from the canal onto Brewhurst Lane, crossing the Loxwood stream and River Lox. Walk down the lane and through the hamlet passing Brewhurst Mill on your right. The Mill dates from at least 1500; a large waterwheel can be seen on the side of the building. Continue ahead for just under 1⁄2 mile to reach the road (C).

Turn right to walk down the pavement, passing St. John the Baptist Church built in 1900 on your left, to arrive back at the Onslow Arms public house and the Canal Centre.
