FILM crews have been shooting at a new long-distance path in Hampshire that will feature 20 stone sculptures.

BBC Countryfile filmed at the Shipwrights Way, which runs between Alice Holt Forest, north of Petersfield, and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

The two-day visit included presenter Matt Baker log boat building at Butser Ancient Farm with Ryan Watts, an experimental archaeologist.

Presenter Julia Bradbury also paddled a replica cockle on Portsmouth Canoe Lake.

Ken Carter, a member of the Shipwrights Way Steering Group, said: ‘It’s great to see the Shipwrights Way and the surrounding area getting national coverage.

‘The route links many attractive, interesting and historically significant places to visit, as well as crossing through the beautiful South Downs National Park. We hope that the Shipwrights Way will attract tourists.’

Artist Richard Perry is making sculptures for the route.
