Beating the Bounds is an ancient custom where a group from the community would walk the boundary of the parish to check for any encroachment or change from neighbouring parishes. Traditionally held on Ascension Day the walk was filled with its own traditions, including hitting boundary markers with the heads of choir boys! Our walk will perambulate the 4 mile route stopping at intervals to explain the historic connections that formed the boundary and its future expansion into the town we know today. The walk will take 2.5 hours and will go across country – good sturdy walking boots are recommended.     

Unless otherwise stated all our walks start from outside the Museum. Maximum number on a walk is 20, so to avoid disappointment it is best to book in advance. Maximum of 3 under 16s tickets per paying adult. If you have any queries, please email education@petersfieldmuseum.co.uk or give us a call on 01730 262601.
