Titchfield Haven - Solent Way - Titchfield Haven and Canal

The walk follows the Solent Way for about 1¾ miles along the cliffs at the entrance to Southampton Water. It then turns inland where the footpath has been diverted due to cliff erosion. There are fine views across The Solent to the Isle of Wight (and the power station and oil refinery, with its attendant tankers, at Fawley). After a stretch along a country road there is a path through woodland followed by another stretch on urban roads. The route then follows the old Titchfield Canal back to the seafront. This stretch of the walk is particularly attractive in summer and autumn. There are many birds to be seen along the route in the nature reserve and along the canal and also in the section where the path goes through woodland (I saw blue tits, great tits, robins, nuthatches and tree-creepers in the space of half a mile). There is an opportunity to visit the picturesque village of Titchfield with its pubs and shops. There is usually plenty of parking on the seafront and toilets just before Waymark 01.

The nature reserve's visitor centre has a tea room and shop.

Did this walk on a sunny Tuesday in November and it was glorious. WW directions were spot on. Total time for us was 2 hours 20 minutes. The end of the walk alongside the canal was muddy but nothing a stout pair of walking boots couldn't cope with. Our only advice would be to get to the start point early as the parking along the Meon Shore area gets very busy even mid week.

Did part of this walk today 10/11/13 in preparation for a group walk later in the month. The path South of Titchfield along the canal was very muddy. The section to the West of the Meon shore chalets had some serious puddles on the raised coast section. It is a delightful walk but as it is not too long nor too rugged it might be best to wear wellington boots (rather than walking boots)after a period of rain. Harry Cook
