Welcome to The Watercress Way

What is the Watercress Way?

It follows a circular route for non vehicular use which uses the public footpaths to highlight the network of old railway lines in this area.

What route does it take?

It follows a route along the old railway line between Alresford, to Kings Worthy and on the west of the mainline from Kings Worthy up to Sutton Scotney, back along the Drove to Alresford.

What happens next?

We have five projects that we aim to complete by 2016. These projects cover the two sides of the mainline. We will be reporting on this project as the work progresses.

  • Look to increase ways in which public access can be made to other sections of the line from the Worthys to Alresford.
  • Promote the use of the path as an alternative, attractive way through the valley.
