This walk's high point is one of the best panoramic views that I have seen in a long time, from Chalton windmill looking south across the Solent, or north deep into the South Downs.

I want to acknowledge that I found this walk in Diana Pe's book, 'Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Church Walks', which includes 41 walks in Hampshire and 9 on the island.

At the start and finish is a very fine pub the 'Red Lion', which is ideal for pre or post walk refreshment.  The walk shows the very best of the South Downs and the hangars of Hampshire (the woods on the escarpments overhanging the valleys).  There is some degree of climbing involved, and can be muddy in places.  It is perfect as a summer walk.
