Cheriton - The village said to be a turning-point in the Civil War

The Wayfarers Walk passes through the centre of the village. It extends for 70 miles between the coast near Portsmouth and Inkpen Beacon just across the Berkshire border. It connects with other long distance paths at Emsworth (Sussex Border Path), at Bedhampton (Solent Way) and at Inkpen Beacon (Test Way).




The River Itchen winds its way past cottages on its way north towards Alresford, and eventually into Southampton Water.




Re-thatching one of the cottages. You can see the depth of thatch on the roof which provides excellent insulation against heat and cold, and the blackened centre strip is where the old thatch has been taken away.


The view along the river from the corner of Hill Houses Lane towards the building that was once the H.H. Inn but is now a private house. The blue inn sign is still on the chimney.




One of the attractive cottages on the road that leads to the Flower Pots Inn.


A desirable residence and patio - but note the "cat" peering around the corner.




Cheriton's award winning Flower Pots Inn, said to be one of the best remaining examples of a traditional English country pub. The pub brews its own award winning beer on the premises under the name 'Flowerpots Brewery Beers'.
