  • WHAT3WORDS/GRID REF: ///hunk.cobble.grapevine ; SU841308

  • DISTANCE: 7 miles

  • DURATION: 3.5 hours

A linear walk along parts of the Sussex Border Path, old railway line and heath of Longmoor ranges between Liphook and Liss. Although Forest Mere is en route, there will unfortunately be no time to pop in for a massage (however, the seeds of an idea for a future festival walk have been planted!). A deviation is planned should the ranges be closed.
