Midweek day walk - Petersfield to Liss

Petersfield to Liss - a slightly challenging ascent onto the Hangers Way

Stunning views (weather permitting), the Hangers Way and a nice pub with real ale and good food.

Book 2 Walk 11

Length :  16½ km or 10½ miles

Toughness :  5 out of 10

Getting there :  Catch the 10:00 am train from London Waterloo (Woking 10:25 am) to Portsmouth Harbour.
Clapham Junctioneers should catch the 9:52 Portsmouth Harbour & Southsea train from that station and change at Woking to join the Waterlusians train at 10:25. At the time of writing, both trains are advertised to use platform 5 at Woking

Meeting point :  Petersfield Station at 11:00 am

Tickets :  Buy a £15 South West Trains Promotion Ticket before midnight on the day prior to the walk (Thank you for pointing that out Thomas) or a cheap day return to Petersfield on the day.

Brief Description

An ever popular walk where the Hangers is designated as an area of outstanding natural  beauty. Walkers normally take a breather at Edward Thomas's Memorial Stone towards the top of the Shoulder of Mutton hill. If the visiblity is good, the vista to the south is well worth a good look there.
There is a short cut immediately after the lunch venue, cutting 5½ km of the walk should you wish.
You may find full details of the walk here and a downloadable PDF here

Quite a cold day and a fair amount of mud, but superb food at the Hawkley Arms.
