Starting from Shawford, we head north along the Itchen Way towards St Catherine's Hill. Anyone wanting to reach the summit will have the opportunity while others can walk around the base of the hill. The walk returns to Shawford via Hockley Golf Course and Twyford along quiet rural paths. There are a couple of stiles that should not prove too difficult for walkers with dogs.
