Through the primeval forest from Steep to Hawkley

After a chance encounter (in a coffee shop) with the proprietor of a bed and breakfast at Petersfield meant that our accommodation was sorted, we checked into the tourist information office for a map,and were given a brochure on a walk called Hangers Way. We decided to tackle the 5.5km section from the villages of Steep to Hawkley. This took us through remnant oak forest complete with old farmhouses, orchids, ducks, a pretty waterfall and friendly donkey. The Hawkley publican was welcoming and we enjoyed a beer and elderberry juice to brace ourselves for the return journey. This part of Hampshire is well worth visiting for its unspoilt natural values.
