We start in the ancient market town of Petersfield and end in the village of Liss, Hampshire. Much of our walk follows the Hangers Way, a long-distance path which lies within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We’ll enjoy unspoilt countryside that that hasn’t changed in hundreds of years. This is a walk of gentle gradients apart from a fairly strenuous climb up Shoulder of Mutton Hill and one short steep downhill section – but the views will be worth it (as will the pint at the end) 😊
