The Shipwrights Way is a 50 mile long distance route which links villages and towns in east Hampshire from Alice Holt Forest down to the coast at Portsmouth. The name reflects the use of oak grown at Alice Holt Forest for Tudor shipbuilding, linking this site with Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, home of the Mary Rose and HMS Victory.
The running route avoids the use of the ferry from Hayling Island and instead follows the coastline of Langstone Harbour so to avoid any reliance on ferry crossing timetables.
