Join us for our first walk of the summer!

Beating the Bounds is an ancient custom, enforced before Norman times and still observed in some English parishes, where a group from the community would walk the boundary of the parish. Whilst there is no recorded evidence that this ceremony took place in Petersfield, there are maps that show the ancient boundaries of the borough and parish.

Our walk will see us travel this 4-mile route, stopping at intervals to explain the historic connections that formed the boundary and its future expansion into the town we know today. Starting in front of the Museum, the walk will take 2½ hours.

Tickets
Standard: £8.00
Friend: £7.00

Please note:
The walk will start and finish outside Petersfield Museum.
We advise wearing sensible footwear.
If you have not been informed of any cancellations or alterations to the event, please assume it is proceeding as planned.
