Start and end at the station at Alresford. This walk has incredible variety. There are several delightful woodland paths and streams. Superb farmland paths are also used and the railway is crossed and recrossed. The sections with views across the River Colne and along Alresford Creek must be experienced. You pass a tide mill (details below). This is a walk you'll definitely want to repeat.

We did this walk on a beautiful summer's day but I have to say I have very mixed feelings about it. The first half up to WP26 is an absolute joy. As the authors stated, there is lots of variety to be enjoyed. Unfortunately at WP26 this variety includes an extremely hazardous 1/4 mile stretch of road walking. It is very busy and safe refuge is negligible. Annoyingly, a lack of alternative footpaths means it is unavoidable, so therefore I cannot really recommend this route to other users. Sorry.
