Sunday Walk: Overton to Whitchurch

Overton to Whitchurch
Length: 17km (10.6 miles) Toughness: 3/10

This is an easy walk down the Test valley that passes many interesting mills, old and new. There are options for shortening the walk in the afternoon.

The suggested lunchtime pub is the Watership Down Inn (01256 892254) in the village of Freefolk, after 7¼ km.

10:15 Exeter St David’s train from Waterloo (Clapham Junction 10:22) arriving Overton at 11:15.

Return trains direct from Whitchurch to Waterloo are at 14:52, 16:52 and 18:52 (journey time 67 mins). If you miss one of these, the alternative to a long wait is to take a train to Andover at 15:20, 17:20 or 19:20 and change there for a fast train to Waterloo (journey time 1 hour 39 mins). Buy an off-peak day return to Whitchurch.
