Walk in the stunning Hampshire countryside for your Hospice!

Online registration for this event will open on Friday 5th March.

Join us on either our 5 or 10 mile country walk through the exclusive grounds of the prestigious Farleigh Wallop Estate at this year’s Farleigh Wallop Woodland Walk. Throughout the walk, you will be surrounded by bluebells and glorious views of the Hampshire countryside, before being greeted with a well-deserved cream tea upon your return.

Due to capacity restrictions, we have a limited number of places available, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis. You are very welcome to bring your dogs along with you, however, as the event is on a private estate, please ensure they are kept on a lead at all times.

History of the Farleigh Estate

The Farleigh Estate has a huge amount of history. If you decide to walk the 5 mile route, you will pass by St. Andrew Church which now stands in isolation. Back in the 17th Century, the area around the Church was the village of Farleigh Wallop; however, the houses are believed to have been destroyed during the Civil War.

On both routes, you will see a glimpse of Farleigh House, where Lord Lymington currently resides. The Farleigh Estate has been in the Wallop family since 1430, however, the house was rebuilt in 1730 following a fire. In 1954, it became a prep school for boys until Quentin Wallop modernised the house and gardens when living there with his family from 1989 – 2014.

Sponsorship information

This year it will cost over £5.6 million to operate the Hospice and provide our services to the local community, with less than 20% funding from the North Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group. We kindly ask all participants to try and collect a small amount of sponsorship to help us continue to provide our care for patients facing life limiting illness in the community. Here is how your contributions will help:

  • £5.60 is the cost of printing a special memory book for children who have lost someone at the Hospice.
  • £15 is the average cost of providing 3 meals, drinks and snacks to a patient per day
  • £20 is the cost of 1 nurse for 1 hour
