Summary: The Shipwrights Way is a long distance walking route in Hampshire which follows the journey of an oak grown in Alice Hope Forest to the historic dockyard of Portsmouth. The way came about as the result of a partnership between East Hampshire District Council, Hampshire County Council, South Downs National Park Authority and the Forestry Commission, who pooled their resources and expertise to bring about the route. Along the way the route links inland villages and towns to the coast through beautiful Hampshire countryside. The Siprights Way passes through Bordon, Liphook, Liss, Petersfield, Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Staunton Country Park, Havant and Hayling Island en route from Alice Hope Forest to Portsmouth.
