The Longparish walk starts at the Village hall, with an excellent network of footpaths including part of the Test Way. The route links a number of hamlets including Forton, Middleton, Longparish Station, West Aston and East Aston. Views include old cottages, landscape and the River Test
Longparish itself has many pretty thatched cottages and St. Nicholas Church, which dates to the 13th century.
After a short walk, you'll find the large monument erected by Col. Iremonger in 1826 to commemorate a Saxon royal murder. For more information on this fascinating story of royal love, intrigue and treachery, visit the Longparish website: www.longparish.org.uk.
