If you would like some manure that is dark and crumbles like peat, get along to Ampfield Riding Stables. To find the stables – on reaching Ampfield, head up and over the hill – follow the brown signs to the track off Pond Lane. Follow the track to the end and you reach their yard and two double gate
At this stage you will probably meet the stablehands. The manure is behind the stable block at the end of the yard. The old heap is accessed through a gate and down a track to the bottom field (weather permitting).
