WORK is underway to complete the last section of the 50-mile Shipwrights Way.

The long distance path for walkers, cyclists and horse-riders links the towns and villages of East Hampshire to the beautiful countryside on their doorstep.

It runs from Alice Holt Forest southwards over the South Downs and all the way to the sea, finishing at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. The final section is in Whitehill and Bordon, to Liss.
