Soberton and Newton Millennium Walk
This 10-mile walk through the South Downs National park starts in the village of Soberton, joins part of the Wayfarers Walk and takes you through the village of Newtown. Look out for the pond just outside Newtown which is a wartime bomb hole.
Soberton was in the 6th century when the area was invaded by the Jutes of Denmark called ‘Sud’ (meaning south) bere (meaning grange) tun (meaning farm). The Danish tribe that invaded this part of Hampshire were called the Meon. The River Meon takes its name from them. The village was formed due to the ever-growing size of South Grange Farm.
