Around 9 miles from Netley, Hampshire, to Botley on the other side of the River Hamble. Initially passing through Royal Victoria Country Park, then along the rather industrial shoreline of Southampton Water, through the woods of Hamble Common and on to the infamous pink ferry at Warsash. Part 1 finishes for lunch on the opposite bank of the Hamble.
Continuing on after lunch along the Eastern side of the Hamble, through the marinas and the mudflats (great for birds!) on to Lower Swanwick. From there, it's back onto the other bank to pass through the fields and woodlands of the council-run Manor Farm, reaching Botley shortly after.
(Some wind interference from a chilly Northerly!).
