WALKERS took part in a six-mile ramble to discover more about the coast’s history and natural beauty.

Members of the public joined conservation group Chichester Harbour Conservancy as they trekked from Langstone Quay to Emsworth and back. The journey saw hikers learn more about the Wade Way, an ancient footpath which formerly connected Hayling Island to mainland Portsmouth.

The team of 13 walkers also visited St Thomas a Becket church, in Church Path, Warblington, and Emsworth Sailing Club, in Bath Road, Emsworth.

Alison Beckett, 42, who led the walk on behalf of CHC, said: ‘It was a enjoyable walk.’

She added: ‘It was all about getting out in the fresh air and taking in the area’s beauty and history.

‘We hold walks all year round for people so they can learn more about the area in which they live.’
