Help connect Amesbury

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Amesbury’s Slow Ways.

For this review of Salame One I followed the route in reverse, from Amesbury to the Salisbury meeting point. The route begins following a picturesque, intimate footpath under tree cover crossing several footbridges over the River Avon and its tributaries. Leaving Durnford behind is the aptly-named road Jubilee Hill which has a moderate upward gradient, featuring the optional detour onto an interesting raised earthwork footpath. Crossing the road at Phillips Lane, the route rounds Old Sarum then joins the fairly steep and rough Portway footpath descending to bring you level with Salisbury at the paved semi-residential Stratford Road. Cross the road and continue until you reach Salisbury’s traffic-free full-tarmac trail to your left. From here follow the signs toward City Centre onto the meeting point.. 2) Halfway up Jubilee Hill road the Slow Ways route suggests you leave the road and pass through a couple of pedestrian gates and walk along the footpath parallel around 200m to then rejoin the road. Though not essential, it offers a nice change of pace so I would recommended it if suitable....

Of note, the Slow Ways Route indicates to use an unmarked road just north of Great Durnford but this is now a "Gated" Private Estate (Photographs attached that show either end of this section), so the road out of the village is to be used....

One slight issue is that on Netton Hill, the route shows as following the right of way as defined on the OS map. In practice, you would need to follow the paths on the ground since the RoW is blocked by fairly dense rape seed (April 2021)...
