Flora Thompson Literary Walk

www.visitwinchester.co.uk/flora-thompson-literary-walk

A self-guided walk around Weavers Down and Holly Hills, Liphook.

Follow in the footsteps of Flora Thompson and enjoy the wildlife, countryside and views that inspired her work. 

In 1925 Flora wrote a guide to the Liphook area and described the magnificent view from Weavers Down. Flora knew well the local network of roads, lanes and pathways which provided the source for many of her observations and delights. 

This self-guide route is about 6 miles and should take about 3.5 hours.

Liphoook lies off the A3, 12 miles north of Petersfield. The walk starts in the cul-de-sac off Longmoor Road, 2.5 miles west of Liphook.
