- Devizes to Winchester off road route?
Yep, can be done. Across the Plain (when it’s open) to Salisbury, then you can use some of the Monarch’s Way/Clarendon Way (some is a footpath). Finish with a bit of cheeky singletrack in Farley Mount.
Traversing the Plain will be fine, it’s one of my semi-regular routes. Let me know if you want a link to the firing times.
Edit: or you could come off the Imber Range Perimeter Path to drop into the Avon Valley, say, Enford, then across to perhaps Tidworth?Posted 5 years agogusamcMember
as above (canal)
off canal at/between Crofton beam pumping station/Great Bedwyn (lovely bit, cafe at pumping mill museum, and a windmill somewhere up hill to S), head SEish to Ham Hill/Inkpen Hill then see last page of – http://www3.hants.gov.uk/test-way.pdf (*also see walks overview as that may give other ideas, yes I know what a foot path is but you might get away with it)
then at Kings Somborneish do an E
ps when doing canal look at bridges, quite a few with masons marked stones and quite a few are rather pleasantly ornate.Posted 5 years ago
Isn’t Clarendon Way a footpath? Is it OK to cycle?
Some of it is. NE of Salisbury on the A30 you can pick up a Byway that becomes Monarch’s Way and the Clarendon Way joins it further along. You can stay on this until Broughton then you will need to head for Kings Somborne where you can pick up a Byway that leads to Farley Mount Country Park, just on the Western side of Winchester.
Edit: there are loads of choices but it’s working out what will be the most time-efficient!Posted 5 years ago
