Shipwrights Way

The Shipwrights Way is a 50 mile long distance route which links villages and towns in east Hampshire. The name reflects the use of oak grown at Alice Holt Forest for Tudor shipbuilding.

Starting from Alice Holt Forest, the route passes through Bordon, Liphook, Liss, Petersfield, Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Staunton Country Park, Havant, Hayling Island. It continues to Portsmouth via the ferry, finishing at the Historic Dockyard.

As much as possible, the route is off-road, using rights of way and permissive paths.

The route has been divided into 12 sections.
