We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

This route was my suggestion. I should have walked it first!

The walk through Shortheath Common is a big improvement over Altbor one. There is still a short walk along the road from the south side of Shortheath Common however, since the bridleway shown on OS maps is now built over.

The weather was good when I walked it but there had been recent rain.
The walk through Binswood, shared with Altbor one, was very boggy. This got a lot worse going through Pheasant Wood. It may be possible to find a way of avoiding this but the best compromise is probably to follow Altbor one from Binstead Wood.

From the Slowways criteria:
1) The route is safe but boggy and slippery in places.
2) The route respects local codes and laws.
3) It is mostly accessible. Pheasant Wood is tough going. There are stiles and gates.
4) The walk is direct, though not as direct as Altbor one.
5) It is mostly off road or on road with pavement.
6) Alton and Bordon have places to eat and drink.
7) There are busses at Alton and Bordon.
8) The route is fairly clear.
9) The walk is enjoyable if you don't mind slippery mud.
10) The paths are all well established. Pheasant Wood is very rutted.
