Walks around Stratford sub Castle
ROUTES TO DOWNLOAD - Local residents have prepared details of some short local walks, each with a set of photos and notes about the views and points of interest. The notes include personal opinions on whether a walk is suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs but please bear in mind your own circumstances/fitness etc.
If you have any feedback about any of the walks, please let us know, especially if you think the instructions need amending.
VISITORS PARKING: There is no restrictive parking in Stratford sub Castle with the exception of the area around Mill Lane where there are double-yellow lines, but please be careful not to obstruct residents’ driveways. Suggested parking areas would be at the southern end of the village (near Hudson’s Field) or the northern end (near St Lawrence Church) - see our Location map.
Walk alongside the River Avon
Note: Due to works for Salisbury's River Park Scheme, some sections of the path detailed in this route have been closed. Signs for a Diversion lead to Coldharbour Lane. The works are due to be completed in Spring 2024.
When the river level is high or there has been heavy rainfall, the Stratford end of the Boardwalk is sometimes submerged.
UPDATE 24 DECEMBER 2023
All of the boardwalk has been closed owing to flooding - see this News article.
