Start time: 13:30
(Estimated finish time: 16:15)
Leisurely 5.5 miles / 8.8 km
Update 09/07/22: about 60-70 % of the walk has tree cover/shade which will help with the heat. We will have plenty of short breaks for a drink of water - please bring plenty, plus a hat and maybe light coloured long sleeves. The route is good underfoot, we cut back the vegetation in Sutton park on Tuesday - just one tree trunk to step over and another low one to duck under. All the 5 stiles in good condition. We follow paths and tracks via the Sutton Park woodland to reach Brockwood Copse Our return route takes us along Green Lane then south on Bosenhill Lane and back up the valley to West Meon church.
Park in the gravel car park by the West Meon village hall (signed from the A32). The post code takes you to the houses but well signed.
