Overview

'Hambledon is a great area for walking as there is an extensive network of footpaths, mostly well-maintained and waymarked with yellow arrows on small disks provided by Hampshire County Council (bridleways have blue arrows). The Wayfarers Walk, a long distance path that goes right across Hampshire, goes through the village on its way from Soberton to Denmead.'

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itchen_Navigation

Category:Winchester
Distance (miles)11
Overview

'At a total distance of about 11 miles between Woodmill and Winchester, the Itchen Navigation can be walked from end to end in a day by anyone reasonably fit. Alternatively the walk can be split into shorter sections ... Now designated part of the Itchen Way (running from Woolston to Cheriton), much of the path that follows the Navigation is not in the best of repair although passable. Parts of the path are eroded and, as it was originally built out of chalk rubble, the path can be quite slippery in all but the driest weather.' ALERT Original Website cited here no longer accessible; replaced with Link to Wikipedia Page on the Navigation itself, the description starting from Winchester.
