Route Description for Meon Valley Walk

Walking the Meon Valley is a mix of history, wildflowers and rivers. Begin at the Sustainability Centre and head towards Salt Hill. Continuing along, you will pass the Royal Naval Base, and on a clear day, you can spot the Isle of Wight. As you continue, the path will open up to stunning views of East Meon, Meon Valley and Buster Hill. Cross a clear blue stream from the River Meon and follow the path to the National Nature Reserve of Old Winchester Hill. You will then stumble upon the Iron Age hill fort that was constructed over 2500 years ago and explore the Bronze Age Burial Mounds that have existed for over 3500 years.
