Meet at the public car park at the Hayling Island Community Centre to car share leaving at 9.30am for Hilsea Lido, ref. SU654044 - postcode PO2 9RR.
The walk will aim to set off from the car park at approx. 10am, going eastward on the north side of the moat to view the new sea defences - the works for which complicated Anne's walk last year. We will return on the south side of the moat, through the woods below the Lines. If the recent weather has been dry then there is an opportunity to walk along the top of the Lines, descending at Bastion 3 on Peronne Road. This route is uneven and a bit overgrown, so not obligatory. No stiles on this walk.
There is a good range of food at the Green Farm Toby Carvery, Copnor Road, PO3 5HS.
