Section B is also largely rural, similar to Section A, and lies mainly within the South Downs National Park – re-entering the park near Four Marks. It spans Eastleigh Borough and Winchester City Councils.

Preferred route description

Section B is around 15km long and starts just after the A272 crossing.

It avoids Woodcote Copse and Bramdean Common before running north of West Tisted. It then runs through the Four Marks Golf Course followed by a trenchless crossing of the A32, before running outside the southern boundary of Chawton House Registered Park and Gardens.

The section ends at the boundary of the South Downs National Park after the B3006 crossing.
