Hampshire and the New Forest Pub Walks

Hampshire and the New Forest Pub Walks

by: Ruth Paley
The Hampshire countryside is a delight for walkers. Taking in stunning coastline, rolling hills, chalk streams and sleepy villages, these circular walks, all between 4 and 8 miles in length, explore the charm and natural beauty of the county's varied landscapes. At the heart of every walk is a top-rated local pub.

Highlights include:
The beautiful coast along the Solent Way and Keyhaven Marshes.
Far-reaching views across the hills of Watership Down.
Shimmering waters of the River Test and the Beaulieu River.
Ancient woodland and country houses at Mottisfont and Hinton Ampner.
Routes through Jane Austin country at Chawton and Steventon.

The book contains numerous full colour photographs illustrating scenes along the routes and some of the pubs. Each walk chapter begins with practical details including distance, OS Explorer map sheet number, start location with grid reference, parking information and satnav for the pub. Detailed route-finding instruction are in numbered paragraphs referenced to the supporting coloured sketch maps. Notes on points of interest along the way are also included plus suggestions for places to visit nearby.
