The penultimate stretch towards Salisbury takes us to Clarendon Park, a stone’s throw from Salisbury. We stop a few minutes short of Clarendon Palace. You can either walk a few minutes further an have a look at the ruins and Llamas on the Palace grounds, or leave it for loop 9 which approaches Clarendon Palace from Salisbury. The first part of the walk, away from the Winterslows, goes through fields whilst past Pitton the past is shaded in woodland.
Length: 15.2 km / 9.5 miles
Time: 3 hours 15 minutes at a swift pace + breaks
Difficulty: Moderate – 234 m total ascent
Highlights of Clarendon Way loop 8
The combination of woodland and open fields is really great on this walk. There are a lot of footpaths around Middle Winterslow and the hilly terrain past Lobhill Barrow just to West is a great start to this walk before opening up to views towards Salisbury Plain.
The approach to Clarendon Park through woods is pretty much in a straight lines. If you walk anti-clockwise, you can break out of the woods just before your reach the westernmost point of the walk and catch a first glimpse of Salisbury Cathedral behind Clarendon Palace. That’s a great feeling if you walk the Clarendon Way from Winchester — the endpoint is in reach!
