Itchen Navigation Pub Walk
Start Woodmill, Southampton
An annual stroll along the old Itchen Navigation towpath, calling in on a few pubs on the way. Depart from Woodmill Bridge, Southampton at 9.30am, reaching The Black Boy, Winchester around 3pm. Usually a pub or two more then a curry. Join us en route if you like - we expect to be at Steam Town, Bishopstoke Road, Eastleigh at 11am, and the Bridge, Shawford around 1.30pm. Please note that departure is now at 9.30am once again, following a few years when there has been no open pub to go to a 11am in Bishopstoke. Steam Town is new micro-brewery and brewery tap that opened November 2017 and has quickly found much favour in Eastleigh, and it's on our route - just turn left, not right, at Bishopstoke Road!
