The Brenda Parker Way long distance footpath was been developed by the North Hampshire Downs Ramblers Group in memory of one of their most illustrious members who established a number of local walking groups in her lifetime. The 78 mile route crosses the rich and diverse north Hampshire countryside between the towns of Aldershot and Andover. These towns lie respectively at the eastern and western edges of the north of the county and have links to Hampshire’s military heritage. Between, the walk takes in heathland, forest, tiny fields and small farms, then climbs to the highest villages in Hampshire, offering spectacular views, rolling downland and clear chalk streams. Places visited on the route, in order from start to finish, include Aldershot, Basingstoke Canal, Fleet, Fleet Pond, Ancells Farm Nature Reserve, Hartley Wintney, Forest of Eversley, Rotherwick, River Loddon, Bramley, remains of Calleva Atrebatvm Roman Town, Silchester, Pamber Forest, Tadley, Baughurst, Inhurst, Ashford Hill Meadows National Nature Reserve, Goose Hill, Kingsclere Woodlands, Kingsclere, Ecchinswell, Burghclere, Highclere Park, Faccombe, St Mary Bourne, Wildhern, Hatherden and Penton Mewsey before ending in Andover.
