Help connect Fareham

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 Fareham’s Slow Ways.

Would be a nice dog walk up from Fareham, with lots of cafes and places to eat (pubs/restaurants/cafes) in Wickham and good bus links between the two if you didn't fancy the walk back....

We did not pass along many major roads, however the bobbing and weaving route suggested did lead us to crossing over busy roads multiple times, which could have been avoided should we have just kept to the wide pavements running alongside the busier roads. The journey between Fareham and Portsmouth can be made multiple ways, but this one made no sense at all....

Walk this route

Plenty of times it takes you in the opposite direction and across major roads that don't have pedestrian crossings. The sensible thing to do would be to turn right down to Downend Road and then left up to The Thicket, but this route takes you left, around to The Causeway and then up a bridle path to a kissing gate which is covered by stinging nettles, along a corn field which would be dire in bad weather. After the Mountbatten centre, don't follow Slow Ways, just walk up to Twyford Avenue and turn right, Slow Ways will bring you across this road in a minute anyway after a few turns in the wrong direction. When you are down to Sultan Road and you think you'll be able to just go into the underpass and along a straight line to your goal, think again, the route will take you off in the opposite direction for fun & laughs (from where you can see your destination in the distance before turning the other way) and you'll somehow end up at the roundabout in Lake Road....

Walk this route

A good route through farmland (mostly crops rather than animals) with some nice little bits of woodland. Reasonably easy to find with signposts at key junctions. The route is partly road, the rest being a mix of wide flat farm tracks and some narrower sections along the edges of fields which are steep in places and get very muddy in the winter....

The new Stubbington bypass forces the uncomfortable but essential detour onto Mays Lane via the Northern section of Old Peak Lane, contingents over the Road and down the southern section of Old Peak Lane might make a neater Route now the bypass will be so very much busier than Titchfield Road via The Old churchyard....

Walk this route

Just before Fort Southwick, there is a dedicated grassy path that then follows the road (on the south side), all the way along the hill until just before the George pub, where the the pavement begins again. The route is reasonably accurate, although personally I would not do the first part of the walk again (Boarhunt Road etc. as it is an extremely busy road)....

This walk takes you through lovely countryside (the gap between Stubbington and Fareham) although ends in the busy town and so around a third of the walk is along roads. The Slow Way is due to have a bypass road opened through the middle of it in late 2021. For now, I would walk it again as it’s a safe route but this will no doubt change when the road is completed....
