Welcome to The Watercress Way
The Watercress Way
A 27 mile route, waymarked using sections of the old railways, existing rights of way and the ancient Droves from Alresford via Kings Worthy to Sutton Scotney
The old Watercress Line and the Didcot- Newbury-Southampton lines were closed in 1963 and 1973, but parts remain accessible. The Watercress Way charity was formed in 2016 to promote the public awareness and use of these paths. The 27 mile route passes through beautiful rolling chalk Hampshire downland and along the sparkling world renowned Rivers Itchen, Arle and Dever.
‘To create an easily accessible, non-motorised circular route linking the communities of Alresford, Kings Worthy and Sutton Scotney via disused railways and existing Drove Roads.’
