Help connect Warminster

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 Warminster’s Slow Ways.

I completely agree with the previous reviews, the section down into the valley near Upton Cow Down is very steep in places - and I can talk from previous experience that it can get a little slippy, though it was fine today....

This is a fantastic way to walk between Westbury and Warminster....

The walk followed the river until it turned off into an housing estate which caused some confusion, however having crossing the A361 open countryside beckoned and despite fields with cows and ‘Beware of the Bull’ signs the walk was pleasant.As mentioned in previous report by Brian the footpath had been altered around Heath House Farm which caused confusion. The walk continued over fields and excellent views of Cley Hill until the outskirts of Warminster where the remainder of the walk was along pavements along a busy road for 1.75 miles to the centre of Warminster...

The pavement section down the A3098 is fine, but at Rodden Road, the pavement disappears, and you are required to walk down a BUSY two lane road ( Styles Hill ), with no pavement and past a blind bend....

Narrow parallel to golf course in Warminster and a steep valley between Field Barn and Upton Cow Down, neither sections suitable for wheelchair users (although there are longer bridle path alternatives marked on OS that could be friendlier for wheels.) Lovely for getting to the White Horse and Bratton Camp. Often windy but wild flowers are lovely in Spring/Summer....
