Ashford Hangers

Hampshire

A Steep route (literally) to get the pulse racing offering two spectacular viewpoints across Hampshire. The first being at the top Shoulder of Mutton hill where you will find a memorial stone to poet Edward Thomas and the second "Cobbetts View" on Wheatham Hill next to the trigpoint. There is also a small waterfall along the way and a beautiful church (All Saints Church) to visit in Steep at the start or end of your walk.

Did you know

The Hangers have important connections with the poet Edward Thomas and on Shoulder-of-Mutton Hill you will find a plaque/stone dedicated to him. His life was sadly cut short when he was killed at the Battle of Arras on Easter Monday in 1917.

"...out we came, all in a moment, at the very edge of the hanger! And never, in all my life, was I so surprised and so delighted! I pulled up my horse, and sat and looked; and it was like looking from the top of a castle down into the sea; except that the valley was land not water." - William Cobbett writing about the view

So it is #BuyMyTurkey day tomorrow and that is all about using the NFU turkey finder to locate a fresh, free range turkey direct from a farm local to YOU! Please, please wherever you buy your turkey this year, do ask if it’s British. We have so many rules and regulations in this country (which drive me round the bend most of the time!! 😂) but they are there for YOU - the consumer! And most free range birds will be traditional, slow growing breeds - it makes SUCH a difference to the taste and the amount of meat you get on your Christmas bird. Plus if you buy from your local farm, you get to see the birds out in the fields, perching on the fences, pecking the grass, and flapping across the fields. You know where your meat is coming from! If you are local to us in Hampshire we would love to supply you but if further afield, please check out the NFU’s website and see who is close to you! www.ashfordfarmturkeys.co.uk #buymyturkey #nfucountryside #nfu #christmasdinner #freshturkey #freerangeturkey #freerangegeese #ashfordfarmturkeys #ashfordfarmgeese #buylocal #shoplocal #lowfoodmiles #buybritish #backbritishfarming #turkey #thanksgiving #christmas #christmas2023 #roastturkey #petersfield #hampshire #bronzeturkeys #freerange #ashfordhangers #localproduce nfulife nfusouth nfucountryside mirandagorebrowne
