Cranborne Droves Way

  • View from above Throope Bottom Cottages (Tim Lewis)

Route summary

The route is 16.7miles (26.7km) and links with the Sarsen Way at Salisbury and the Wessex Ridgeway at Win Green.

The route directions below are written for walkers. There are slight variations for riders. There is no viable route through Salisbury for equestrians and it is envisaged that they would end (or start) on the A3094, or before. They also take a slightly different route round Stratford Tony church.

The walkers, mountain bikers and equestrians pages have links to maps of the respective routes and reflect the slight differences.

The route is waymarked using the logo on the left.

GPX/KML files can be downloaded from the mountain biking route or the walking route from the links on the right of these pages. The equestrian route has not been separately mapped but follows the same route as the mountain biking route, but we suggest you stop short of Salisbury.
