is an introduction to a stunning book about Hampshire and the South Downs Way. Below, you can read the FREE introduction to the book Whan that Aprille.
The book is full of fascinating facts and legends about the history and present of a county that is modest about all it has to offer.
The South Downs Way is a long-distance footpath that winds its way from historic Winchester to Eastbourne in Sussex. The first part of a delightful walking break takes the hiker from England’s ancient capital city to East-Hampshire’s border, just beyond the market town of Petersfield.
A journey that can be taken by cyclists and horse-riders as well as ramblers, it can also be followed closely by motorists winding along country lanes.
There is infinite variety within the towns and villages past which the South Downs Way meanders. Country pubs, many offering food, can provide a relaxing break on your travels and, just occasionally, there is the chance of
a cream-tea. It is a landscape peppered with noteworthy people and places.
The book Whan that Aprille by Heather Lacey is a treat, beautifully illustrated with stunning photographs, many by Steve Cannings, a photographer from Petersfield, and it is also bestrewn with maps and drawings.
Heather rambled her way along the Hampshire end of the South Downs Way and was inspired by the landscape and people around her to produce this wonderful book.
You are invited to continue reading this FREE introductionary chapter to the book, which follows this page.
