Mottisfont to Romsey

Route map

The Way now passes the church of St Andrew and crosses the River Dun just before it joins the Test.

Lanes and tracks skirt around the village of Awbridge before entering Squabb Wood, reminiscent of the New Forest.

Emerge from the wood and see the 10th century Romsey Abbey across the marshland. Then go past Sadlers Mill and its salmon leap and down to the thriving medieval market town of Romsey.
