This is a fantastic slow way, and the wet drizzly weather didn't spoil it for me today (though definitely worth being well prepared!). The climb out of Bratton was less steep than i feared and the Imber Range path is gravelled and easy walking. I completely agree with the previous reviews, the section down into the valley near Upton Cow Down is very steep in places - and I can talk from previous experience that it can get a little slippy, though it was fine today. It would definitely be worth adding the longer route that follows the bridleway to Upon Scudamore as an alternative route. After that, the walking is easy and the drop down into Warminster makes for a pleasant walk - straight to the station, and train back to Westbury for me.

I concur with the previous review. I found the section up to Upton Cow Down challenging, but I was walking to a short time section as I had a bus to catch. With over 60 % of the route paved it was very good, and the remaining grassed pasture benign, with no stiles or cows. I would recommend walkers divert off left at 5 mi to visit the viewing area, and Westbury White Horse. The route can be picked up again further down the tarmac lane.
I am aware an alternative route is possible through cropped fields to Upton Scudamore, but I recollect this has stiles and a railway line to cross. With time, I hope to check this out.

Mostly on Imber Range Perimeter Path and so generally very accessible. Narrow parallel to golf course in Warminster and a steep valley between Field Barn and Upton Cow Down, neither sections suitable for wheelchair users (although there are longer bridle path alternatives marked on OS that could be friendlier for wheels.) Lovely for getting to the White Horse and Bratton Camp. Often windy but wild flowers are lovely in Spring/Summer.
