About the rally

Thursday 16 to Monday 20 May 2019

  • Visit the Watercress Festival
  • Great location for walking
  • Skittles evening
Join Portsmouth Group for this short rally at The Milburys public-house rally field. The location is perfect for walking, as the South Downs Way runs right past the front of the pub.

The Milburys is a 17th-century inn and restaurant situated at the top of Millbarrow Down, a chalk down formerly a Bronze Age barrow cemetery. The pub is on the crossroads just up from the village of Beauworth, and many other barrows can be seen from here.

The site is close to the lovely Watercress Line. Take a trip and hop on and off to explore the line’s four stops – Alresford, Ropley, Medstead & Four Marks and Alton, where it joins the mainline.

On the Sunday 19 May the annual Watercress Festival is held. This is a celebration of watercress, held in the beautiful Georgian market town of Alresford. 

The festival showcases a number of musicians and street performers, as well as over 80 stalls selling local food and drink, art, clothing and much more. You could even take part in the festival’s highlight event, the Great Watercress Eating Competition. The current world record for downing an 85g bag is 32 seconds! The festival makes an enjoyable day out for all.

The rally field itself is conveniently located at the back of the Milburys pub.
