Walk description:

Park in car park next to Havant Museum. Set off south along the Hayling Billy line trail until Langstone Road disects across trail. Turn left then take next left into Langstone High Street. Keep to the path in front of the Royal Oak and follow path along shore line. It is worth loitering along this path to admire the windmill and the wildlife. When the path ends drop down steep slope onto shore line, or if tide is in follow footpath then road northward leading into Wade Court Road and look for footpath disecting � see note below. Once on the shore line after a short distance there is a green track leading northward. Take this up to Pook Lane, turn left. This leads you to the foot bridge over the A27 - note steep slopes. Once back in Pook Lane immediately look for footbath off to the left between 1st and 2nd house on your left. Keep straight on along footpath, over Norris Gdns. At Wade Court Road take a right and left to continue along footpath � clue look for cycling prohibited sign. This is where short cut rejoins. Continue along footpath this will take you past the bottom of Lymbourn Rd and then Lymbourn Wildflower Meadow on your left. Upon returning to the Hayling Billy line turn right to get back to Car Park.

Additional notes:

Car Park is next to Havant Museum (PO9 1BS), entrance off of East Street. The part on the foreshore is the roughest surface to cover and caused this walk a 2 rating. The short cut route back is the easier and arguably the more interesting route increasing the rating to 4 and reducing mileage to 2. Be aware of steep slopes to footbridge over A27. There is a cafe in the Havant Arts Centre next to the Museum, this also has a disabled toilet. Opening hours not known. Toilet diversions; there is a public toilet outside The Ship pub which is further south along Langstone Road before bridge over to Hayling Island; there is also a disabled toilet (NOT RADAR) in the Cemetary next to Warblington Church.
