50 Walks in Hampshire & Isle of Wight

50 Walks in Hampshire & Isle of Wight

by: David Hancock
Hampshire's varied landscape of hills and heaths, downlands and forests, valleys and coast is unique to southern England. The county also boasts secluded and idyllic villages complete with thatched and timber framed cottages, Norman churches, elegant Georgian market towns, restored canals and ancient abbeys, forts and castles. There is indeed plenty to discover exploring Hampshire on foot. You can stride out across the high, rolling chalk downland in the north with far reaching views, walk through steep, beech-clad hangers, close to the Sussex border, or meander along peaceful paths through unspoilt river valleys, etched by the sparkling trout streams of the Test, Itchen, Avon and Meon.

This guide explores some of the best countryside in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.
