This is a linear walk
Bus fare on the Stagecoach 64 from Alresford to Alton £5.65 single or use a bus pass. The walk is an old Pilgrim's route and some sections have become minor roads and some sections are on tracks including an old railway, otherwise the route is across farmland. The first mile is through the centre of Alton. Good footwear and layers of clothing for all weathers is recommended. Bring food and drink for a picnic. We will have a break in Chawton Park after a mile and then a longer lunch break for our picnics. Toilets at Alresford, Alton Station and Alton High St. We are never far from the bus route and pass by Watercress Heritage Railway Line stations of Medstead (for Four Marks) and Ropley if there is a need for anyone to drop out of the full route commitment.
