This year I’ve done my share of pondering while looking out into the distance across the Solent, and one of the things that’s caught my eye is a rather pointy looking building.

It turns out the pointy looking building is a little more than that, investigating walks along the coast I came across this route Southampton to Hamble-le-Rice featuring a similarly pointy looking building.

Adding 2 and 2, the spot on my horizon, beyond the new Ocean Village developments, is Netley Hospital Chapel and it’s only 5 miles away as part of the Royal Victoria Country Park.


My degree is almost over now, having handed in my final report last Friday, so I finally decided now was the time to go the distance and see the pointy building with my own eyes.

Crossing the Itchen Bridge for the 1st time in my 3 years living in Southampton:

Towers along the edge of the Solent

An here it is, Netley Hospital Chapel

(As it turned out, today was the day of a 10k run. )

Today I broke my all time record, almost 20,000 steps logged by Moves. 9.6 Miles in total, this excludes my short jaunt into the city centre to get sun cream
