Help connect Stanford-on-Avon

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 Stanford-on-Avon’s Slow Ways.

When I did the walk it was also really boggy after Lilbourne Gorse and on the way to the A5, and the final route to the A5 was across an unmarked field. At the top of the hill the route skirts the edge of the woodland and then surprisingly for a long distance walking route, the path loses the way markers. The route down the hill towards the A5 was also unmarked so I had to rely on my phones GPS to navigate to the road. On the other side of the road, the path is very unmaintained (photo 12), and I can imagine doing it in spring or summer would be very difficult and tough....

Both this walk and Stawes two were not walked when I was researching which to take, and despite this being slightly longer I chose this as their was slightly less road walking involved with this route. The OS map shows a more direct route past Winwick, and I wondered why this route took you through a slightly longer route past the Mill House, but the slight diversion proved worthwhile as we caught sight of some alpacas in the well kept grounds of the Mill House....

The route around the village of Lilbourne could have been a little more direct, we couldn’t see a particular benefit to the route that had been chosen there. As the first reviewer mentioned, at least two pubs en route, a coffee shop and village store, but nothing at Stanford so I would suggest getting something earlier on in the walk....

There was one field which was severely overgrown, we managed to push through but I can imagine many would be put off and you certainly wouldn't have got a wheelchair or buggy through it, the undergrowth was up to our heads! I don't think the overgrown areas would be so bad in winter and as this hasn't been reviewed before I wouldn't want to put anyone off walking it....
