I really enjoyed the part from Soberton to Horndean, but found the walk from Bishops Waltham to Swanmore incredibly dull. (although the same could be said about the other end walking though Horndean!) That said Bishops Waltham is a beautiful Historic Market Town and well worth the visit....

You then walk down to the River Meon at Droxford, again don't stress about finding the footpath up to the Village shop, just follow the main path past the mill onto Mill Lane (its much prettier and FAR safer than walking down the A32 - you can do this perfectly safely, there is pavement, there is just no need). As you enter the woods out the back of Dundridge the SlowWays path does a funny loop up to the road, but there is absolutely no need for this, just follow the sign-posted path down the hill to re-join the route!...

Walk this route

The route crosses a number of stiles, and parts of the route include uneven ground. When I walked this route at the end of August 2022, energy lines were being installed on part of the route between Bishop's Waltham and Upham, so I followed the roads to divert around it, then followed the trail back to the obstruction....

Walk this route

The 'path' across the field is very boggy (even in summer) and I would suggest continuing east from West Horton Farm towards Lake Farm and then turning south to walk through the farm buildings....

Walk this route

It also crosses a grass airstrip at one point but again this is not busy and it's easy to see at hear whether it's in use at the particular moment....

Jonathan Bramley

Walk this route

This route is mainly on pavements or along quiet lanes, with some stretches across fields or through small woods....
