Hampshire 2012

Let's try and make 2012 the year in which we complete, or almost complete, all the rights of way in an English county - Hampshire. OSM road coverage of many parts of the UK is virtually complete in many areas, but footpaths are still lagging behind. However some counties appear to be getting some way towards completion and one of them is Hampshire, which has seen footpath coverage grow significantly over the last three years or so. While I don't know for certain, I think that if enough people are up for it, there's a good chance all the rural rights of way in the county can be complete by the end of next year.


Here is a list of areas of the county for which significant mapping of footpaths still needs to be done, to the best of my knowledge. Feel free to split some of the larger areas up if you know them well, I don't know some of the areas in the far north of the county that well and consequently the areas here are rather big.
