Todays Blog (I need your help)

The Southwest Coast path from Lands-End to Poole Dorset is pretty well defined, and the Southdowns way from Winchester to Easbourne is well defined too, and some of it is along the coast, but I need to find a path between the two!

How do I get from Poole to Winchester?

Is there a path from Poole to Christchurch?
Is there a path through the new forest from Poole or Christchurch to Winchester?
Is there a path through the new forest from Christchurch to the Lymington/Freshwater Isle of Wight ferry?
I have walked round the Isle of wight so I know that bit is good
Is there a path from the Fishbourne/Portmouth ferry to the South Downs way? and if so where is the best place to join it?

  1. Hi,

    Unsure if you still need this info., but if you want to avoid s'ton and p'mouth, I would walk along the coast to Bournemouth to Christchurch, then take the Avon Valley Path north to Salisbury and the Clarendon Way eastwards to Winchester; named paths all the way.

    WRT Poole to Christchurch: you can walk towards Sandbanks, and then along the promenade all the way to Hengistbury Head. From there, several paths lead up to Christchurch.

    WRT Portsmouth to the SDW: you could try following the Solent Way and then the Wayfarers Walk or a variant thereof.

    WRT Christchurch to Lymington: follow the cliffs to Milford-on-Sea, and then take the Solent Way eastwards.

    All of these walks are detailed on my 'site:
