Meon Valley walks
The beautiful Meon Valley offers a wealth of things to do including some fantastic walks, including many from right outside the front door of the Thomas Lord.
There is the lovely 10-mile Meon Valley Railway Line Walk, which follows the bed of the former Meon Valley Railway, and offers pretty views over the nearby towns, villages and countryside.
Or there is the 6.5-mile Pilgrimage Walk in the steps of Saint Wilfrid, an English bishop who was venerated as a saint after his death in 709 or 710. There are 10 churches in total on this trail including St Peter’s Church, the first church founded by Wilfrid in the Meon Valley.
A slightly longer pilgrimage style walk is the Churches Walk, which combines the chance to explore the stunning scenery of Meon Valley with discovering some of the county’s historically most important churches. The trail, approximately 24 miles in length, visits 11 churches, starting at All Saints’ Church, one of the finest Norman churches in Hampshire.
Many other stunning walking routes of varying distances are available across Meon Valley.
