DABEWP Old Way Pilgrimage 2021 Southampton-Rye

Day 3: Wickham to Havant

Today's Notes: 1. Both Southwick pubs close on Mondays. The tearoom opposite the church requires pre-order. There's usually a burger van on the B2177 just after we leave the Priory Ruins

The liberation of France, Operation Overlord, was planned from Southwick Hall. This Southwick is pronounced "Suvvik" (but Louise says this is my Sahf London interpretation and it should be Suthick with a "th" sound nota "v") John Chenery
