Hannington and South Downs Walk

A little more adventurous for us - a 4.7 mile walk.

Just north of the village the high downland falls away in a steep escarpment to give breathtaking views over the Thames valley. This walk climbs the down to enjoy the view, crossing the route of the Portway, the Roman road that formed part of the link between London and Salisbury (Old Sarum). We will follow the edge of the escarpment for nearly 2 miles, passing the site of an ancient settlement, before taking field paths to return to Hannington.

Parking available on the Village Green by the church and we will meet at the Church Gate.

    We believe we actually walked around 5 1/4 miles up many many hills. The scenery was wonderful and the company good as well. Nice to see Andy on his first outing with the group and of course also appreciate Anne-Marie, Chris and Dawn coming along for this walk - great to see you all

    I will aim to be at the start point around 10.15 to 10.20 and we will start off fairly promptly at 10.30 in order to be to the pub on time for those that are also eating.
