Walk Y - Hunningham & Marton
The Red Lion public house in Hunningham.
A pleasant walk alongside the rivers Leam and Itchen. On summer Sundays there is a museum open in Marton.
From the The Red Lion pub, situated next to a packhorse bridge in Hunningham, this walk goes alongside the river Leam, passing Saint Margarets church to the left, before joining the Hunningham Road. The walk continues over fields and over the Fosse Way before reaching the river Itchen and Marton village. In the summer months the Museum of Country Bygones is open on a Sunday. The local church of St. Esprit is believed to be the only one in the country with this name.
The return is alongside the river Itchen and then to Wappenbury. The churches of Saint John and Saint Anne's are to the left. On the way to Hunningham, after passing some earthworks, the river Leam is crossed using an old stone bridge. The route continues over fields back to The Red Lion.
Permission has been given by the owner or manager for walkers to leave their vehicles in the car park on the understanding that they will patronise the establishment either before or after the walk.
