    This hike winds through Hampshire’s ‘cereal belt’, a landscape of fertile rolling chalk farmland interspersed with traditional villages and pockets of woodlands.

    Another fairly challenging hike, Stage 2 is 14.1 miles (22.7 km) long with 950 feet (290 m) of uphill and 750 feet (229 m) of downhill.

    From Kingsclere, you rise south through fields with beautiful views before heading west over Cottington Hill and rejoining the Wayfarer's Walk.

    It is then a long and gradual descent through peaceful countryside; over For Down, through North Oakley village, into Frith Wood, and around Great Deane Wood and Little Deane Wood. After crossing over the railway line, you head through fields to All Saints, a pretty church on the edge of Deane Park.

    You cross a second railway line, skirt around Bull's Bushes Copse and South Wood, cross over the M3 motorway, and hike around the golf course to Dummer, where this stage finishes. You find limited accommodation within the village but other options nearby. There are places for food and drink locally, too.
