Hampshire - Jane Austen's countryside

Overton Circular
Length: 18.7km (11.6 miles) Toughness: 4/10

09:42 Exeter St Davids train from Waterloo arriving Overton at 11:09.

Return trains are at 16:00, 18:00 and 20:00 (journey time 1 hour 26 mins).

This walk passes through gently undulating scenery in the north of Hampshire with several Jane Austen associations. The recommended lunch pub is The Fox in North Waltham (01256 397288), which is usually fully booked for Sunday lunch. A table for 6 has been reserved for 1:00pm in the name of the SWC. IMPORTANT - Please phone the pub as you leave Overton to tell them the exact number who want to eat there.

For those not requiring a pub lunch, there is a shortcut that reduces the walk length to 8.6 miles.

You will need to download the walk directions.

N=1 Sunday regular, as learned from the walker involved, on last Sunday's Watton-at-Stone walk.
