Wherwell is a small village on the River Test, with it's name deriving from it's 'Bubbling Springs'.

This part of the route uses an old dismantled railway line to lead you down to Stockbridge. The river is always beside you, peeping through the trees, passing the villages of Leckford and, across the river, Longstock.

Stockbridge’s wide main street rests on a chalk causeway built over the seven streams that make up the River Test. The water criss-crosses the high street, where you can take a short break from your route to feed the huge trout or explore the highstreet.
