Walk 28 - Sunday Social Stroll Around Our Trees

  • DATE: Sunday 11 June 2023

  • TIME: 14.00 

  • START LOCATION: Car Park, Heath Road, Petersfield (beside Little School Nursery)

  • DISTANCE: 1-2 miles

  • DURATION: 1 hour 30 mins

Would you like to fill that quiet downtime between 2 pm & 3 pm on a Sunday afternoon? Need encouragement to go out for a walk? Not fit but enjoy walking and would love some company along the way? Well, this gentle walk and talk around town with the Social Strollers will help you get started and provide a cuppa at the end.

No walking boots needed! Join volunteers from Hills To Harbour Community Rail Partnership for a fascinating walk focusing on some of the lovely trees of Petersfield. The walk leader is Petersfield Tree Warden Robin Hart, author of the Tree Trail guide. He will share his deep knowledge of trees both rare, and of those which are a little more plentiful.


We will meet at the carpark on Heath Road, just next to the Nursery, and after walking around the Heath we will finish this part of the tour at the Avenue. We can then stroll up through the town, perhaps using our new knowledge to identify trees on the way, to finish finally at the Hub by the station, where refreshments await.

The walk is part of a series of social strolls to be held (where possible) on the second Sunday each month.

The Social Strollers are a wellness walking group set up by the Hills to Harbour Community Rail Partnership. The group is for people who are not hikers but enjoy going out for a stroll in the fresh air with company on a Sunday afternoon. HHCRP works with the local community to promote the use of sustainable travel. They bring the railway to the community and the community to the railway. On their website and at their tourist hub at Petersfield Railway station they have a number of walks and cycle rides that can all be enjoyed using public transport.
