Help connect Upavon
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 Upavon’s Slow Ways.

Generally speaking the route was clear and easy to navigate, with lovely views across Pewsey Valley. - Firstly on the approach to Trenchard Lines military base the route should take you to the north of the base via a small grassy footpath, but it is easy to miss this and stay on the obvious gravel track (which isn’t actually on the OS map and takes you down to the A342);...
Mostly accessible tarmac, rolling gradients, some steep hills...
The route out of Devizes follows pavement along St Johns St, Long St, and the A342 to Wick Lane, which whilst scenic is busy with vehicles.There is a quieter route to Wick Lane which is the Devmar one and two routes. The section down to Drew's Pond, and up onto Potterne Field are very pretty,and the views on Potterne Field are fantastic ( assuming you do it in good weather ! )....
Following the section of tarmac road ( White St ) up to the White Horse Trail, which follows alongside the Westdown Artillery Range for the next 7 miles. There is another quiet tarmac road down to the A342, then pavement into Upavon....
It loses one star as the start, as published, involves walking on a narrow A-road, winding through the village with no footpath for 200yds....
