Latest Updates

At the end of the Test Boardwalk section (on the Test Way but within HIOWWT reserve) there is a short section of deep mud and bog most of the time due to fluctuating tides. It has been in disrepair for more than 6 months and makes passing difficult without waterproof footwear....

However it is not wheelchair accessible for it's full length - part of the section through the Lower Test Nature Reserve has narrow gates at both ends, so although the walking through there is easy, largely on a boardwalk, you wouldn't be able to get in or out in a wheelchair unless you could arrange for the vehicle gates to be open....

This is not an attractive walk but it is definitely the most efficient way to walk from Totton to Southampton and is very safe and accessible. Whilst one is walking beside the main road there is good separation from the traffic, and whilst some of the pavements are shared between pedestrians and cyclists we did not find this to be a problem....

Walk this route

It's definitely not a pretty route, and next/near to busy roads the whole way but if you are trying to walk from Southampton to anywhere in the New Forest then this is certainly the most direct route avoiding Ferries....

Walk this route

It's a pretty walk across the marshes and fields. Be careful when it is a very high tide as areas of the marshes footpath flood....

Amelia Brice

Walk this route

Beautiful low-lying test valley walk that runs past the back of Broadlands (home of the Lord Mountbatten) and then zigzags through some more marshy farmland before heading south into Totton....

spadgershat

Walk this route

A pleasant walk, mainly alongside fields of pasture and livestock, as well as some woodland and the River Test. Very easy to follow from the Slow Ways map. Unfortunately not suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs due to numerous kissing gates, narrow footpaths and uneven surfaces (one area of footpath was also flooded today (early May) and had to be skirted round)....

Walk this route

Just one possible improvement: north of Totton, road walking ca be reduced by branching off the Test Way at lat 50.9255 lon -1.4870 and following the permissive path southwards to reach the main road at 50.9187 -1.4822, close to Totton station - then turn right to reach the town centre....

Nice route, could possibly be diverted west of Brook by following the south side of the golf course to hit the (quiet) Rufus Stone road, and then north to Brook. This would avoid the section along the busy in summer B road....

Walk this route

Most direct route, but I wouldn't like to walk this way, as though you are not directly on the side of the A35 you are walking parallel to it along main cycle route and through industrial sites. Main car and cycle network out of Southampton, so not really walker friendly or enjoyable....
