Beating the Bounds is an ancient custom, enforced before Norman times and still observed in some English parishes where a group from the community would walk the boundary of the parish. Whilst there is no recorded evidence that this ceremony took place in Petersfield, there are maps that show the ancient boundaries of the borough and parish.

Our walk will perambulate this 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. Starting at the Police Station, the walk will take 2½ hours and sensible walking shoes should be worn.
