Walk between past and present Isle of Wight Festival sites, ending at Bestival

General Notes
Route: Through the golf course, and along the northern slope of Afton Down, site of the old 600,000 Jimi Hendrix/Who flower power festivals. Past Calbourne Mill to Newport. Around the site of the modern-day IOW Festivals. To the Hare and Hounds at Robin Hill, where Bestival is taking place! Other information: We hope to stop at a pub somewhere for a lunchtime pint, but bring along enough food and drink for the day just in case we don't. Our ETA at the hare and Hounds is about 1700. We should be covering a lot of footpaths never walked on by our group before, and we might even get the chance to listen to some Bestival music at the end!
