Map board at foot of Shawford Down showing local footpaths

The picture at the top of the page shows a view of Winchester Cathedral from Hurdle Way (taken with a long lens).

This is a wonderful part of the country for walks.

There is a keen walkers’ group in the parish.

Reports of some of their past walks and dates of planned for future walks are under walkers. Walks usually start by meeting at the Jubilee Pavilion.

Former Parish Councillor Tom Threlfall documented an interesting historical Serendipity Trail around the parish.

Definitive Footpath Maps

Hampshire County Council maintains the official map of footpaths and rights of way.

Here are some links to pages on the HCC website

Why not try the County Council’s new online mapping tool?

Just visit http://www3.hants.gov.uk/row/row-maps.htm and click on the link to online maps.

You can zoom in on an area in Hampshire where you are planning to walk and see the rights of way.

This is a beta service so is not guaranteed to continue, and if it does, there may be changes in the final version.

You can also download a KML file which you can overlay on other mapping tools, such as Google Maps (with apologies to those for whom this may be too technical).
