Walk Description:

Back by popular demand and hoping for better weather this time!  We will meet at Stourpaine Village Playing Fields car park.  This is located at the end of 'Havelins,' there is no charge.  We will begin the walk through the village and then straight up Hod Hill.  This is the first of TWO hills on this walk.  The hill is reasonably steep with an elevation of 100m.  We then continue up on to the top of Hod Hill but more gradually, for another 30m of elevation.  We will be rewared with fabulous views.  Next we walk across the top and around the rings before descending the other side of the hill.  This means we are then ready to climb our second hill; Hambledon Hill.  This hill is shorter, but definitely steeper than the first!  Everyone can take this hill at their own pace, we climb an elevation of approximately 120m.  Once on the top we again have wonderful views of the surrounding area.  Time will be taken to continue walking across the top and around the edge of the hill to enjoy the views from all sides, and enjoy a picnic lunch - so please bring something to eat and something to sit on.  We then head down between both hills and around the side of Hod Hill through fields, to return to Stourpaine.  This route can be windy at the top and muddy in places after rain so please be prepared for this.  Although this walk does have TWO (quite challenging) hills it is very rewarding and there is lots on the flat too; it is a lovely area to explore.  Note: there are no toilets on this walk.
