Geo-Trips :: Future anticipated, the past appreciated

Alton, Hampshire

A walk from Southview Rise Shops, Tue, 2 Nov 2021 by Basher Eyre

Mary Hopkin had it right. Memories of my youth when I had friends in Alton. But it had been many years since I had been to the outskirts. Starting from Southview Rise, I went to the Old Odiham Road, down Gilbert White Way, back through Geales Crescent and Alton Cemetery to Greenfields Avenue. Hopefully as I enter my retirement years many such trips lie ahead...

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
