Where next? Click a location to go there. Distances are estimated.
Lee-on-the-Solent 2.55mi / 4.10km - at low tide it is possible to use the beach for most of this route after crossing the Meon and passing the Titchfield Haven visitor centre. An alternative route follows Cliff Road, Hill Head Road and Salterns Road (no footpath).
Stubbington 2.07mi / 3.33km - over the Meon bridge and past the Titchfield Haven visitor centre. Follow Cliff Road as it becomes Hill Head Road. Turn left on to Crofton Lane and follow this road which becomes Bells Lane at its junction with Cuckoo Lane. Turn left on to Stubbington Road for Stubbington Green.
Titchfield 2.72mi / 4.38km - Meon Road leads inland, becoming Triangle Lane and then Posbrook Lane. These roads have no footpath. Where Posbrook Lane meets the main road, turn right down Coach Hill. At the bottom of the hill, turn left to South Street and the village (right to Bridge Street if avoiding the village).
Warsash 4.17mi / 6.71km - Follow the beach all the way to Hook Lake and then the path round the nature reserve and past the Maritime Academy. This path has suffered erosion and care is needed. Cross Strawberry Field (park) and follow the path from the park to Newtown Road. Turn left for Warsash village centre. Alternatively, continue along the path instead of going through Strawberry Field and turn right at the Rising Sun. Turn right again at the top of the hill (4.22mi / 6.79km by this route). The shore at Solent Breezes is difficult, being covered by rocks and the remains of failed sea defences. At high tide, the sea covers the entire shore at this point.
This route should only be used at low tide and cliff falls are possible. An alternative path (The Solent Way) is shown on maps, following the shore although going inland at Solent Breezes. I have not checked it.
Warsash 5.16mi / 8.30km - Meon Road leads inland, becoming Triangle Lane and then Posbrook Lane. These roads have no footpath. Where Posbrook Lane meets the main road, turn left on to Common Lane. Follow this road to its junction with Warsash Road and turn left again. Stay on Warsash Road to Warsash village centre.
