Slow Ways linking Westbury and Bratton, Frome, Trowbridge, Warminster

England / Wiltshire / Westbury

Westbury’s four Slow Ways are 88% checked

Help connect Westbury

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 Westbury’s Slow Ways.

I walked wesbra one today, but looped back round and walked the road section that makes wesbra two different. While I enjoyed the footpath in wesbra one, I cannot disagree that this version is more accessible, and is well worth having in the database as an alternative....

Brian added Wesbra two, a new walk from Westbury to Bratton

Walk this route

I have created an alternative route Wesbra two which follows the majority of the original route, but instead of bearing right up the pasture land with stiles, it continues along the Lower Westbury Road, joining the Trowbridge Bratton Road, and then largely following Wesbra one, slightly changing at Redlands. This route is then Wheelchair / Pushchair / and mobility scooter friendly...

After Dilton Marsh, the path continues through arable fields until reaching a road and railway (path passes under) at Penleigh, after which the route is more urban into Westbury....

In terms of interest, it's not very remarkable other than passing close to Westbury White Horse, but if you're looking for a relatively flat walking route from Westbury to Bratton this is the obvious way to go....
