Walking in Hampshire

Steep to Petersfield

Walking out of Steep the route passes the grounds of Bedales, famous both nationally and internationally as an innovatory public school.

Once you have crossed the A3, you come into the busy market town of Petersfield. Worth a visit just off the Square is the Flora Twort Gallery and the Physic Garden in the High Street.

The nearby heath features many burial mounds and dates back to the Bronze Age. Today, it is a popular recreation area with fishing, a children’s play area and a boating lake.
