SURROUNDING AREA

Although close to the town of Eastleigh, and having seen much development over the past 150 years, Bishopstoke Parish still contains a variety of types of countryside.

The Old village of Bishopstoke lies on the River Itchen. The western Parish Boundary for the most part lies through the water meadows. To the south of the village the land is flat and largely arable with but one footpath for recreational access. To the north the land is more undulating and wooded with far more opportunity for access. To the east of the village there lies Stoke Park Wood, through which lay several bridleways and footpaths.

Plan a walk - long or short; there and back or circular. Walk the Itchen navigation tow path to Winchester or Southampton and get the train home. Take a picnic to the water meadows up by Lords Wood by walking down through Breach Sling Copse. Take the path from the River Inn and head towards West Horton Farm. Figure out a circular walk around Stoke Park Woods - especially in spring when some parts are carpeted with bluebells.

However you choose to spend your time we are sure you will enjoy it here in Bishopstoke.
