Walk off that Christmas turkey walking a fascinating and disused canal, we follow the tow path down towards a superb wetland nature reserve and the Meon Marsh sea lock towards the sea edge and a scenic clifftop path. We follow this part of the Solent Way along an unspoilt stretch of Hampshire's coast. Here there is a local tea room or the legendary Osborne View claiming beautiful views across the Solent towards the Isle of Wight. We can pop into the pub for a Christmas brandy. Pub or packed lunches/snacks optional here or after the walk. After festive refreshments we will follow the path back inland through farmland. Further pub stops available in Titchfield.
: Bridge Street CarPark by the Canal Tow Path, PO14 4EA
: From M27 Junction 9 follow signs for the A27. You will quickly reach a large roundabout. Take the turning for the A27 East, towards Fareham. Go straight ahead at the first roundabout.
You will pass a set of traffic lights - get in the right hand lane and follow the right hand turn in a loop around. The second turning off this loop is to Titchfield Village - take this and follow this road which turns left through the village centre (High Street). Continue along High Street until you reach a mini roundabout. Take a left hand turn into Bridge Street. Directly after you cross the canal you will see a turning to the right, off which is a small car park.
