Footpaths and Walks

We are fortunate to have so many footpaths and walks that meander through our Parish. The most famous is the “Shipwrights Way”, a new long distance route which links villages and towns in east Hampshire through some beautiful countryside. The name reflects the use of oak grown at Alice Holt Forest for Tudor shipbuilding, linking this site with Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, home of the Mary Rose and HMS Victory.

Starting from Alice Holt Forest, the route passes through Bordon, Liphook, Liss, Petersfield, Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Staunton Country Park, Havant, Hayling Island and continues to Portsmouth via the ferry, finishing at the Historic Dockyard – around 50 miles in all, and including seven rail stations.

There are also twenty stone sculptures along the way, beautifully carved to show the history or wildlife of each place – see if you can spot them all!
