East Meon Walk


A beautiful circular walk which starts from the pretty village of East Meon. I have revised the start point of this walk from Ye Olde George pub to the (recently discovered by me!) large public car park. This gives a much better start and finish to the walk through some of the quiet and pretty lanes in the village, as well as plenty of free parking for many cars. The route is varied and full of breathtaking Hampshire views. Starting off along field-paths to the hamlet of Drayton, you then enjoy a walk through Henwood, join the South Downs Way to Coombe Cross, then climb the wooded trackway to the top of Salt Hill. On a clear day you can see for miles all around from here! After walking along the crest of the open downland you descend and by way of field-paths, return to East Meon ready to do justice to the superb home cooking at Ye Olde George! 

Those with dogs may find it helpful to know that my dog, a fit, slim Labrador who cannot jump stiles, managed to get through all the stiles without any difficulty. There used to be some stiles on this walk that were not very dog-friendly, but I'm pleased to report that they have been replaced with kissing- gates.
