Sponsored Walk South Downs Way

South Downs Walk


In the Autumn, the children ran the Mega Marathon, now it’s time for a family challenge! We’re asking you to join us walking the first section of the South Downs Way, from Winchester to Exton which is about 12.5 miles.

The Heggie’s did a practice run, so we know that Yr 3 and Yr 5 children can do it (admittedly not without a little chocolate bribery)!

In the run up to the walk we’ll be practicing some map reading skills in school and The South Downs National Park education team will be joining us in school to produce an I-spy sheet for the walk.

We’d like to arrange for some refreshments at Cheesefoot Head car park which is about an hour’s walk out of Winchester and at the top of the main hill climb. Lunch will be at the Milbury’s Pub (you can bring your own picnic, the landlord is happy for us to use the tables outside).

Please complete the form below to let us know whether you’ll take part as a family, or if you can support the event in other ways by helping with transport or refreshments. Dogs on leads welcome. Sponsorship information will follow. We hope to see you on the 28th April!
