Help connect Bordon

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 Bordon’s Slow Ways.

I also missed a very hidden footpath onto Petersfield Golf Club (see photo 1). There is a short section on road without a pavement on Forest Road in Liss. When I got to Greatham, instead of turning left along Longmoor Road I turned right and then went through the woods, rather than follow the road (photo 2)....

Ran this from Bordon back to Liphook today, it is a very muddy route, with a long road section outside Bordon that is unlit, fast, with no pavements and not always easy to step off the road. Not really suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs and the mud would make either very difficult later in the route. The route as described by the GPX file cannot be followed, there are too few points and the straight lines between them are not always on actual paths, never mind rights of way....

The Liphook Road out of Whitehill is busy, so I stayed within the woods after Round Hill instead of returning to the road as the route shows. This turned out to be OK. The crossing point at the A3 is by a bend in the A3. This makes the crossing quite dangerous, it is necessary to sprint to the central reservation. Once across, the continuation is not clear. To make the situation worse, there is then a housing development which completely obliterates the path. I was not about to risk returning across the A3 and I found myself negotiating ditches and overgrown areas to get to the housing estate. If you want to walk this route, do not take this part. Even if the B3004 has no path from here it is a better option. 1) The route is not safe. Apart from the A3 crossing, there are sections on unpaved narrow road....

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 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. 4) The walk is direct, though not as direct as Altbor one....

5) It is nearly all off road but there is a short stretch of road without pavement at Blacknest. The traffic is light and there are grassy patches at the side. 6) There are pubs at Kingsley and Blacknest, on short spurs off the route....

I have offered an alternative route (Altbor 2) avoiding these issues but one mile longer. 2) The route respects local codes and laws. 3) It is accessible in that it is not a strenuous walk. there are parts that will be very muddy in wet weather, judging from the areas with deep animal footprints. There are no stiles, just gates. 4) The walk is direct. 5) It is mostly off road or on road with pavement but there is one stretch of road without pavement. 6) There are resting places along the way, seating at the church in East Worldham. Alton and Bordon have places to eat and drink. 7) There are busses at Alton and Bordon. 8) The route is fairly clear but there are a couple of places where you could be led a little astray without GPS. 9) The walk is enjoyable and the scenery pleasant enough. 10) The paths are all well established....
