However, until 1908 the different religious denominations followed a separate route from the Church of England procession. Although in 1909 the same route was used by all denominations, the non-conformists and Roman Catholics did not assemble in Bank Park, nor take part in a march past the Town Hall. Eventually, in 1920 all participants in the procession came together to proclaim a joint acknowledgement of Christianity.' Held Early July.

Overview

'Walking on footpaths and tracks is the best way to enjoy Hampshire's lovely and diverse countryside. The Victorian nature writer Richard Jefferies pointed out, long before our dependence on the motor car, that "They only know a country who are acquainted with its footpaths. By the roads, indeed, the outside may be seen; but the footpaths go through the heart of the land". The Wayfarers Walk will take you into the heart of Hampshire - It traverses the eastern and northern parts of the County only, but still provides a fine selection of the coastline, woodlands, gentle rolling hills and rich green valleys for which Hampshire is renowned.'

'The route visits 5 mileposts, 2 boundary stones and 3 ancient gritstone guide posts (known locally as 'stoops', derived from an old Scandinavian word) used by packhorse trains before the turnpike era. Each stoop is accompanied by a "companion stone", part of an art project instituted in 2010. The walk also takes in a prominent wooden pole also once used as a guide to travellers and parish boundary marker.'
