Help connect Byfield

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 Byfield’s Slow Ways.

The route passes by pubs at Charwelton and Newnham, and I believe there is a pub a short way from the route in Badby if you need refreshments. After reaching the top of the Down, the route then descends again as it skirts through the pretty Badby Woods, and then finally into the village of Badby. The route then climbs again out of the pretty village of Newnham towards the highest point of the walk - Newnham Hill Radio Mast....

The route on the other side of the farm follows a hedge and is supposed to come out onto the Welsh Road. You have to then look carefully for the route out of Priors Hardwick, as when we did the route it wasn't that obvious as it seemed to cut through a back garden. After walking down the escarpment around an old derelict barn, the route takes you diagonally through a small section of woodland towards Bennet's Barn Farm....
