Letters WW on green arrow with nameWayfarer's Walk

Hampshire, W Berkshire

114 km / 71 miles
A walk linking the mud flats along the coast with the highest downland in southern England, following tracks used by shepherds driving their sheep to fairs. Initially coincident with the Solent Way, the Walk crosses the chalk ridge of Portsdown, the Meon Valley and goes through the villages of Hinton Amper and Dummer before climbing to become a ridgeway walk over Watership Down and Walbury Hill. The end on Inkpen Beacon meets the Test Way.

A local walker, Dr R G Bennets, has now made available a detailed route description which is available as a download, see below.
