The first section Is the short length of the west boundary with New Alresford. The length of the boundary between BIshops Sutton and New Alresford Parishes is only three quarters of a mile.
The perambulation starts on what is now the B3047 just the Alresford side of the Railway bridge at what was called Bowling Close Gate, and headed south with Bowling Close on the Sutton side and Marrow Ditch on the Alresford side.(Bowling close being subsequently cut through when the railway was built 120 years later). Sweatly Row is the hedge row on the west of the solar farm. The Cump would have been in the corner where the old section of White hill Lane is, when it was cut of by the A31 bypass. The boundary then runs west just north of the old section of White Hill lane, then turns south again to cross the old White Hill Lane at its junction with Appledown lane. Appledown Gate would have been about there.

The river at Bishop's Sutton looking towards Pound Cottage. c1910
It's a bit grainy, but there is a chap filling buckets and emptying them in to the water barrel being towed by the horse. Pound Cottage would have been the village pound where stray animals were kept for collection by their owners

The Old Bridge, 2010
The old bridge with its low wall you could sit on or lean right over on or walk along , its ledge you could stand on .
its buttress you could climb up and down and its double arches which were just big enough for a small boy to crawl through if you dint mind getting wet.
