Wednesday Walk Petersfield to Liss

Petersfield to Liss T=2.11 

Much of this walk follows the Hangers Way, a long distance path which lies within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Much of the walk is in unspoilt countryside which remains as it was several hundred years ago. The very steep ascent of Shoulder of Mutton Hill can be avoided by taking a slightly longer alternative route. Whichever route is taken the view at the top is spectacular.

Length: 16.6km (10.3 miles) Toughness: 5/10

Trains: Get the 1000 Portsmouth Harbour Train from Waterloo arriving Petersfield 1103. Direct return trains are xx02, 1623, 1723. Changing at Petersfield are 1821, 1906, 1922.
Get a return to Petersfield. There are some cheap advance tickets available.

Lunch: The suggested lunch stop is the Hawkley Inn (tel 01730 827205), 6.6km into the walk. The pub has a garden and serves home cooked food until 2pm. Booking is advised.

Tea: The suggested tea stop is Wine Bar & Coffee House at 41-43 Station Road open to 5pm. An alternative is the Whistle Stop pub at the bottom of Hill Brow Road, 150m past the station.

Have booked a table for 6 diners at 1 o’clock as this pub is always mobbed with pensioners (moan) walkers (moan) cyclists (👍) assorted day trippers ⛱and locals🦏 You may wish to sit in the garden on the day. If you are in two minds about pub or sandwiches go pub as it used to be super good. The Lunch Monitor.
