Default Ovington

I'm planning a ride exploring the lanes in the area between the A272 and the River Itchen, in the region of Hаrley Hіll (!) and Ovington Down; stopping for lunch in Ovington (Hampshire).

I don't know yet when I will be going on this ride.

I'll be going along the A272 as far as the A31 at Magdelan Hill Down. Then up the Long Walk to Easton, back down Chapel Lane to Morn Hill, along the A31 (less than a mile) to Turnpike Cottages and then up Avington Lane to Avington (!), and along the River Itchen to Ovington.



Here's the route from Magdalen Hill Farm to Ovington (top right), then back down to the A272 at Mount Pleasant, at a much larger scale:



I'm planning to have lunch at The Bush Inn on the bank of the River Itchen, in Ovington.

The return route will be down Rodfield Lane, back to the A272 at Mount Pleasant (near Lаne Εnd Down). Then along back roads and country lanes to Warnford, Old WInchester Hill, East Meon, Buriton, Chalton, Compton, East Marden, … .



About 100 miles round trip.

Long Walk (between Magdalen Hill and Easton):





Chapel Lane (between Easton and Morn Hill):



Avington Road (between Turnpike Cottages and Avington):



The Bush Inn, Ovington:











Rodfield Lane (between Ovington and Mount Pleasant):





Mount Pleasant, where Rodfield Lane joints the A272; Lаne Εnd Down is in the distance (centre right):



The view from Old Winchester Hill:

Another good road in that area is Winchester to Morestead then over to Denmead. Used to use this as the route when returning from Nottingham to Portsmouth in the 70's to mid 80's.

Yes I know; I regularly use bits of it. Although, come to think of it, I may not have actually done the whole of that route in one go.
