Distance from the South Downs Way: One mile

Buriton is no more than a mile from the South Downs Way but be prepared for a steep climb to get back on the path!

The village of Buriton enjoys an idyllic setting at the foot of the downs, complete with a duck pond. Next to the pond is the Church of Saint Mary, a beautiful building dating back to the 12th Century. Buriton is situated around 24 miles along the South Downs Way from Winchester, almost a quarter of the way to Eastbourne.
